"A Bridge of Her Own" Reviews
This was a lovely read by a debut author. A Bridge of Her Own was told in a narrative style that left me feeling like I made a new friend in Jane, the main character. Likable and real, Jane's story is full of growth, heartbreak, and self-discovery. Her story took me back to that precious and often painful time of late adolescence and early adulthood, when we are uncertain about our paths, when we make bad choices, and then are forced to move on and hopefully grow from them. It was full of humor and dialogue that was fresh and real -- I simply loved Jane's long-term friend, roommate, and cheerleader, Lacey, who has no qualms pool-sharking a guy at an arcade game and then grabbing his face and kissing it. I adored Jane's father, who coughed something "suspiciously like asshole" when Jane's horrible ex-boyfriend tried to reenter her life. There were moments that were sweet and others that made me want to cry. And I found myself truly rooting for certain characters, and wanting to hit over the head other characters -- or throw them under a bus, in the case of emotionally abusive ex-boyfriend, Wyatt. I think that was the true power of this story. It made me really feel for Jane and literally want to stand up and cheer for her when she finally discovered herself. I might have done just that.
I really loved this story and am looking forward to more from this author.
I couldnt finish it!! I didn't get past the first couple of chapters... I couldn't keep reading about such a weak, spineless 'heroine'...
First of all...Wyatt Huntington III, you are one of the biggest jerks to ever walk this earth, and I despise you!
Now that that's out of the way...
I loved this book. It was a hopeful, sweet, inspiring read that was exactly what I needed right now. I was sucked in immediately and couldn't stop reading!
I identified with this novel's heroine from the very beginning, when she began dating and quickly lost her virginity to that absolute DICKHEAD Wyatt. This scene was written in such an honest way; it was painful and really struck a chord with me. It was also painful to watch Jane try so desperately to stay with Wyatt and fall apart whenever he threatened to leave her, even though she had to give up so much of herself to be with him. Though Jane's lack of self-reliance could be frustrating to read about at times, I really appreciated Heywood writing a character who not only starts out with a lack of independence, but takes a long time to find herself and suffers setbacks once she begins to. This was a very honest portrayal of the way so many young women feel, and it was completely believable considering Jane's personality and relationship with her parents.
Letting Jane make mistakes, and taking such time to develop her character, also allowed the author to make her character growth that much more rewarding to experience. I absolutely loved the way the book ended, and I really appreciated that while Jane had a new man in her life, the journey was more about her personally than about the romance. I also loved the strong female friendship portrayed throughout this novel.
A great read sure to resonate with anyone who's struggled to overcome their insecurities and stand on their own.
Well firstly I read it in a day! (I'd tried to start it before Christmas but time wasn't on my side) From the beginning I liked Jane, its nice to read a character who isn't instantly the popular or confident girl and she's just the kind of likeable girl I enjoy reading about. It's a great book for friendships, yes there's men and relationship drama but unlike so many books it doesn't dominate the story. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good chick-lit book and one with great dynamics!
Loved this book! Highly recommend.
good read. I loved Jane and could not put the book down for wondering what would come next.
