Book Review: The Bridge

Publication Date: October 2012

Genre: Christian Fiction

Number one New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury delivers an instant classic with this heartwarming Christmas story about a hundred-year flood, lost love, and the beauty of enduring friendships.

The Bridge is a love story set against the struggle of the American bookstore, a love story you will never forget.

So, the above description comes from goodreads.  I took out the overly long middle description, because it seemed just about as long as the book itself.  I can say with confidence that this is not a love story you will never forget.  It is utterly forgettable.  It's like every love story in every cliche-ridden romance novel you've ever read.  

I have really liked Karen Kingsbury's novels in the past. Yes, they can be a bit cheesy and overly sweet. But they are good enough to keep me reading. This one didn't live up to her normal levels, though.

I wish she would have focused more on the book store aspect, and less on the lost love.  That was easily the silliest part of the book.  I can't say I'd recommend this one.
