Paris, 1937. Andras, a Hungarian-Jewish architecture student,
arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a
mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a
complicated relationship with the letter's recipient, he becomes privy
to a secret that will alter the course of hisand his
family's history. From the small Hungarian town of Konyár to the
grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian
winter to an unimaginable life in labor camps, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a family shattered and remade in history's darkest hour.

Join us as we discuss this fascinating historical novel.  All are welcome!

This delightful family read aloud skillfully weaves empathy, compassion and family into a beautifully realized story – universal and timeless – I dare say a new classic, in the mold of Charlotte’s Web (without the talking animals). Ten-year old Louie is trying his best to save a mini-donkey, he named Winston, who was born prematurely and whose mother died giving birth. Louie’s track record is not so good at keeping animals in his care alive, but he has faith in Winslow and gives him everything he has – most especially his love. Louie is sure Winslow will survive, and uses his plight as connection to his older brother Gus’ absence serving in the army. Strong, fully developed characters come to life in Creech’s vividly, and deceptively short novel which will stay with you long after the satisfying last page. - Maureen
