The best selling author was signing copies of her most recent novel,
"The Bridge", "This is a book that shows random acts of kindness by a
town to help a bookstore owner" explains Kingsbury.
The book is set in Franklin, TN and inspired by several real events including the historic flood.
While the fictional story is centered around the closing of a beloved bookstore - it's message goes much deeper.
Barton is fictitious owner of bookstore he not only experiences
disillusion of a dream and his bookstore is closing but also a tragedy.
What happens is sort of reminiscent of it's a wonderful life" says
Throughout these pages, Kingsbury poses a question on the minds of many of us these days.
What do we do when we feel like we've lost everything?
In the light of last Friday, we all want to hold on to our loved ones
more tightly. A story like the bridge shows you coming together,
highlights the best in our culture and in people" says Kingsbury.
Lost love and the beauty of enduring friendships complete the storyline
and like her other inspirational fiction books, the content is
something readers say they can really relate to.
"Her books are
so real, you relate to characters. They seem so real" says Janice
Adcock, who has been reading Kingsbury's books for years.
Without giving anything away, it's safe to say that the main message
within these pages is that God is in control even when we can't see it!
Bridge is one of those stories you can give to almost anyone. It's a
shorter read in a gifty size it comes across as a ray of hope" says
