Considering the abysmal weather lately, I’ve spent a lot of time holed up in my house reading — not a bad snow day activity! As such, I’ve recently finished reading The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer, which I absolutely loved. In fact, I loved it so much that I’ll be giving away one copy!
Orringer’s first novel follows Andras Lévi, young Hungarian-Jewish man across Europe and back again, charting his life before and during World War II. It’s perfect for anyone interested in historical fiction, World War II, or extended narratives in general. Orringer describes the narrative perfectly on her website:
From the small Hungarian town of Konyár to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the lonely chill of Andras’s room on the rue des Écoles to the deep and enduring connection he discovers on the rue de Sévigné, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in forced labor camps and beyond, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a love tested by disaster, of brothers whose bonds cannot be broken, of a family shattered and remade in history’s darkest hour, and of the dangerous power of art in a time of war.
