One year ago, a family is driving across a covered bridge at night when an oncoming car without headlights runs them over the edge into the river. With horrible swiftness, Sylvie’s young son was gone and her husband was permanently paralyzed. Left with shattering blame and grief, Sylvia becomes a recluse in the woods. Her daughter Ruby, amid all the uncertainty in her life, becomes obsessed with bridges, drawing inspiration from the strength and purpose that underlies their grace. During one momentous week, as Hurricane Irene bears down on their small Vermont town and a pregnant teenager with a devastating secret gradually draws Sylvie back into the world, Ruby and her mother will have a chance to span the gap between them again.
T. Greenwood’s lush prose and distinctive style has earned extraordinary acclaim for her previous seven novels. Shimmering and haunting, The Forever Bridge again proves Greenwood’s gifts in a story about reconciliation, forgiveness, and the deep, often unexpected connections that can bring you home.
