Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Bridge to Eternity by Romola Farr. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think.
Audrey, recently widowed, is not saying why she left her comfortable home in the south of England to move into an old school boarding house on the edge of a moor. Tina, a young estate agent, is concerned for Audrey’s safety as she believes the folklore about a schoolboy who never went home. Property developers, annoyed at losing a site ripe for demolition, make plans to encourage Audrey to sell. Malcolm, a charming widower, brings a welcome light into Audrey’s life until it shines into a very dark corner…
Bridge to Eternity is a great debut novel that definitely kept the pages turning. A story of love, loss and redemption, I’m really impressed with this one!
The characters are richly crafted to feel real. I love Aubrey. She’s well-rounded and a great lead for this story. I’m impressed with all the characters, but I think she is my favorite.
This story is actually pretty creepy. It’s a twisted road full of surprises I didn’t see coming. My only irk was the reveal came a bit too sudden, and it didn’t have the impact I wanted it to. But overall, the story moved along well and was really well penned.
I recommend checking this one out. A well-written, creepy story that keeps the pages turning!
“I started my working life in the theatre and was very lucky to find myself on the West End stage in a hit play at the age of 16. My career and life nearly ended there as I was knocked down by a car on the way home one Saturday night. I recovered and went on to be quite a successful photographic model. Later, when that part of my career did die, I turned to writing and made quite a good living writing screenplays, making films, and writing advertising copy for a marketing company. A few years ago I entered a short-story competition and fell in love with prose and knew I had to tell my own story within a fictional framework. At the moment I am hiding behind a nom de plume.”
