Product Description

Product Description

In present day China, an old woman's house sits opposite an ancient bridge. Not just any bridge--but a special one because it has always been known as 'The Lucky Bridge.' In olden days, it was said to bring a traveler good luck if walked over during a marriage ceremony, or at the beginning of the New Year. Because of its reputation, over the years it has also became a popular place for young mothers to abandon their children. What to some may seem cruel, is in reality a mother's final gift to their offspring--one last chance to send their baby off to a new destiny with luck on their side. Jing, an old woman, is the unofficial... and often reluctant, guardian of the bridge. Because no one else will do it, Jing often steps in to prevent the children from frostbite, abuse and hunger. Then she delivers them safely to an orphanage. This has been her burdensome routine for many years, but what will the old woman do when the latest child--a blind boy--burrows too deeply into her heart...

Read 'The Bridge' to see how Fei Fei's life is changed by the love of a lonely old woman. The Bridge is a short story of 17,000 words, approximately 72 pages. Fei Fei's character is based on a real orphaned boy that Kay Bratt met during her time in China.

Really enjoyed reading this book. Lovely story, predictable in places but it gets away with it because it is written in context. Provides an insight into a different way of life.

this was an good story and I was really enjoying it, but it just seemed to finish abruptly. I do feel that the story could have been taken a bit further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read but not long enough 26 May 2014

The book was a good read however it wasn't long enough. I just got really interested in the story and it ended. I am sure a longer storyline would have been advantageous.

This is a heart warming story. Although it doesn't take long to read, I was unable to put it down. A story of hardship and love like this should appeal to mist people.
