The Invisible Bridge Summary


The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer

LONGLISTED FOR THE ORANGE PRIZE FOR FICTION

Paris, 1937. Andras Levi, an architecture student, has arrived from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he has promised to deliver to Clara Morgenstern a young widow living in the city. When Andras meets Clara he is drawn deeply into her extraordinary and secret life, just as Europe's unfolding tragedy sends them both into a state of terrifying uncertainty.

From a remote Hungarian village to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in forced labour camps and beyond, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a marriage tested by disaster and of a family, threatened with annihilation, bound by love and history.

The Invisible Bridge Reviews


Old-fashioned in the best possible way: a big, generously involving story, utterly convincing in its texture and detail. Beautiful and sad * Metro *
Compelling, passionate, tragic * Marie Claire *
Powerful and affecting, crowded with the details of lives led and miseries inflicted * Sunday Times *
There are characters whose fate we care about, and a profoundly moving love story threaded between the tenacity of family and the monstrous grind of war. One that cries for you to linger over page by enthralling page -- Simon Schama * Financial Times *
Gripping, moving * TLS *
Stunning, gracefully written, altogether remarkable * LA Times *
A sweeping epic, a good old-fashioned page-turner * Daily Mail *
