Skillfully created, magnificently written, emotionally haunting, and extremely hard to place down, The Invisible Bridge overwhelmingly verifies Julie Orringer's place as one of today's most vital and strong young literary talents.
Paris, 1937. Andras Leacute, a Hungarian-Jewish architecture student, arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with the letter's recipient, he becomes privy to a secret that will alter the course of his-and his family's-history. From the small Hungarian town of Konya acute to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in labor camps, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a family shattered and remade in history's darkest hour.
The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer tells the story about a love subjected to testing by frustration and anger, involving brothers whose bonds cannot be destroyed, of a family members shattered and remade in history's darkest hour, and of the damaging ability of art in a time of war.
