Book description
"A Bridge To Cross" is a historical fiction set in 1927. The story begins in Buffalo, NY when the lives of young, vigorous Leopold Throckmorton and vivacious Phryne Truffaut are driven to drastic change by deception, betrayal and violence. Phryne and Leopold have kept steady company for almost two years, and are a dynamic, effervescent pair. The subject of marriage was brought up more than once, but they never made any definite plans. They seemed to shy away from any sense of permanence in their relationship. Secretly, they feared that marriage would be the end of the fun. Neither of them desired their lifestyle to change; at least not yet. There was simply too much to do, so much to enjoy, and, besides, life so far has been an endless party. Phryne relished her sexuality and would tease her man at every opportunity. A soft touch here, a quiet whisper there, or a gentle hand upon his thigh was not only a temptation for him, but a thrill for her. He knew it, and sometimes would pretend to ignore her with detached indifference. This would only make her tantalizing behavior even more direct, and his playful rejections stronger. It was foreplay that could last for hours, and always ended with passionate, prolonged and fervent rapture. Phryne and Leopold shared an avaricious love of life that was energetically practiced as the accepted norm in 1927. Living and loving in the "Roaring Twenties" was exactly that: experiencing life with a resounding roar. Forces beyond their control eventually make the roar even louder and dangerously deafening.
This is book #3 of the Throckmorton Family Novels. The mysteries and family sectrets of "In A Cream Packard" and "The Katydid Effect" are uncovered and explained. Like all the other novels in the series, it can be enjoyed on a stand-alone basis.
