Impossible to put down
on 22 September 2010
When I finished Bride Flight I was close to tears. Partly because it's such a moving story, and partly because I just didn't want it to finish. Marieke van der Pol writes beautifully and her characters remain engaging throughout. The story is full of twists and turns and situations I didn't expect to happen. I can't write about the plot here because it's too good to spoil in a review. It is funny, it's emotional, and it has a truly cinematic feel. It reminded me of the film 'The Notebook' in a funny sort of way, so if you liked that you must read this. Finally, I challenge anyone to read the bit with the photograph in the final chapter without crying and to know whether they're happy or sad about it. A truly wonderful book and an original story of love, friendship and divided loyalty.
