Sofi's Bridge by Christine Lindsay



About Sofi's Bridge:

Seattle Debutant Sofi Andersson will do everything in her power to protect her sister who is suffering from shock over their father's death. Charles, the family busy-body, threatens to lock Trina in a sanatorium-a whitewashed term for an insane asylum-so Sofi will rescue her little sister, even if it means running away to the Cascade Mountains with only the new gardener Neil Macpherson to protect them. But in a cabin high in the Cascades, Sofi begins to recognize that the handsome immigrant from Ireland harbors secrets of his own. Can she trust this man whose gentle manner brings such peace to her traumatized sister and such tumult to her own emotions? And can Neil, the gardener continue to hide from Sofi that he is really Dr. Neil Galloway, a man wanted for murder by the British police? Only an act of faith and love will bridge the distance that separates lies from truth and safety.


Renee's Review of Sofi's Bridge:

A tale of trauma and secrets, Sofi's Bridge is one that touches the heart.

After her father's unexpected death, Sofi's mother finds comfort in a bottle of laudanum while her sister, slips farther into another world. Her own grief is shoved aside as she formulates a plan to keep her sister out of the sanatorium and get the help she really needs. She decides to trust an unknown man with kind eyes and a gentle voice with a secret past.

In the process, she discovers the bridge she designed is being built, but something is drastically wrong. The calculations don't add up, the metal is falling apart, and people are getting hurt. More secrets surround her with every passing second.

I had a hard time getting into this story but once I did, it kept my attention.

* * * * I give Sofi's Bridge four stars. Good job, Ms. Lindsay.
