The Other Side of the Bridge has two narratives: Ava’s in the present as she struggles separation from her husband and Sophia–Ava’s grandmother–while she works with the resistance against the Nazis in World War II. Ava’s is the primary story line, and the connection between two is the struggle both women face on their journey to find their love. But that was a pretty weak connection. Ava’s struggles, while difficult, aren’t comparable to her grandmother’s. Her grandmother reluctantly risks her life several times while Ava grapples with the drama of whether or not her husband loves her. I wished that the focus had been more on Sophia, or at least that Ava had faced similar stakes.
Ava’s story shows a woman struggling to put her life back together after her marriage falls apart. She gains depth in her character through her relationships with the villagers, and they break her out of the woe is me introspection. She also recognizes that she doesn’t know everything when she’s dealing with living on her own or accidentally butting into other’s lives. If the story didn’t shift back and forth between her and her grandmother, it would have been easy to sympathize with her emotional state.Read more ›
Ava Lancet goes to Lousidous Greece, to the home she inherited after her grandmother passed away. She needs time alone after separating with her husband. She is also still grieving the loss of their baby. She makes several good friends who help her fix up the house and trace the history of her grandmother and why she left so soon after the war. No one in this town likes to speak of the war, so it's hard to find the answers she desperately wants. Little by little she gets some answers, but they only lead to more questions.
I loved this book because it kept me interested throughout the entire story. I didn't want to stop reading because I was anxious to find out what happened. Ava's grandmother, Sophia's part in the story was very interesting too. This is one of those books that you don't know what happens until the very end.
