The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer
The Invisible Bridge

Naomi Benaron, January 1, 2012

An epic historical novel following two Hungarian families in the years leading up to and then through the Holocaust. Orringer has done her research not only about the war, but about subjects as varied as dance, theater, opera, and architecture, all in their historical context. With painstaking detail of life and place, she drops the reader squarely inside her story. Her characters are beautifully wrought with all their strengths and flaws, their deep capacity for love. I could not put the book down, and it stayed with me long after I read the last word with tears in my eyes. This is a story that will break your heart but also lift you up, renewing faith in the resilience of the human spirit.
