A midwife derailed by grief struggles to repair her relationship with her troubled daughter, and a pregnant homeless girl seeks shelter as Hurricane Irene relentlessly approaches.
T. Greenwood is one of my all-time favorite authors, and her books are notoriously hard to synopsize and review. The Forever Bridge is perhaps her most conventionally plotted book, with a strong sense of narrative suspense, but it’s still a novel that takes its time in the nuances of character and relationships. There are so many moments that grabbed at my heart and made me fall in love with these strong, weak, brave, scared women.
On a side note, I totally love that she wrote a book about a midwife that makes her a real person and doesn’t use her profession as a sensational plot device.
Many thanks to T. Greenwood for the review copy.
