Bridge to the Past is one of the loveliest, most gripping, thrilling books I have read in a long time. As I begin to write my review I am still in such awe of the Bridge to the Past and the wonderful words the book holds; I found this book to be incredibly gripping, it enthralled me from beginning to end captured my attention from the very first sentence.

Bridge to the Past follows the protagonist of the novel Victoria as the reader travels with her on her wondrous journey of self-discovery across the centuries. When Victoria and her husband go on a trip, Victoria learns of a woman called Katherine, who lived in the 18th century. However, Katherine was not an ordinary woman as she was accused of murdering her husband. What happens after this point in this novel is truly brilliant so I do not want to spoil it but what I will say is that something happens and Victoria is thrown into Katherine’s body to the 18th century and this is the premise of this wonderful, time travel journey.
The story of Bridge to the Past is magnetic, poignant and engrossing. This beautiful story captivated me from the very beginning, the story itself is so unique that I felt drawn to it.
