The Cardturner by Louis Sachar
The Cardturner

Suthie, January 1, 2011

You would not think "playing Bridge" would be the perfect premise for a love story, but Sachar takes a risk using this fading-in-popularity card game as the backdrop for an engaging tale about a crotechety, blind uncle who employs his 17-year-old nephew as his cardturner.
