Princess Rosalynn is pretty, spoiled, and childish. She gives no thought to the men and women that protect her father's throne. Then one day, invaders from the enormous kingdom across the river storm across the Bridge and conquer the royal castle. Alone and in danger, Rosalynn sets out on foot to find her father. Driven by fear, she finds the Bridge and crosses it. In the enemy kingdom, she meets an unexpected friend--a woman who has discovered a secret way to save Rosalynn's kingdom. Together Rosalynn and the wise woman face enemy soldiers, wicked outlaws, and the wilds of the river on their quest to save her tiny kingdom. Their goal is the Bridge itself and the secret that it holds.
"The Bridge" Reviews
It’s the best feeling when you’ve finished a book your friends have lavished with praise and it lives up and even exceeds the fanfare. Mary and Allison, I’ve finally read The Bridge!
It was a completely delightful read. Simple but with a charm that makes it a powerful and impactful story. This is the perfect example of a quality book I wouldn’t hesitate to share with young kids. Why? Because it’s masterfully crafted and so rich in lessons, lessons that any parent would strive to instill in their kids.
I’m definitely reading more by this authoress and will be joining the ranks of loyal fangirls, sharing her works with my friends and family.
This trilogy was my favorite to read growing up, even as a teenager. I don't remember how many times I have re-read these three books.
This series has to be one of my all-time favorite children's series. Maybe it's because of my love of kings, kingdoms, and princesses, maybe it's the idea of secret identities, but whatever the reason, these books captured my imagination from the day I first read it over 10 years ago, and I am still held captive by them to this day. These books sit within easy reach on my bookshelf to allow for multiple (and frequent) re-readings.
My sister first read me this book when I was three, so it's not an exaggeration when I say I grew up with the book. I'm guessing that I've read it at least ten times, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if I've read it more than that.
This was the first time I've read the book in several years though, and I was actually amazed that there were sentences, paragraphs, and even one chapter that I hadn't specifically remembered. I was delighted over and over again at how the author weaves the story into place and draws us into the world she created.
I don't know how to explain this except to say that the Bracken Trilogy is so woven into my childhood that I hardly know where one ends and the other begins. Every time I had to go outside to get something I would act like I was Rosalynn riding Herron's horse, Javelin. Rosewyn and I had so much in common that I was reminded of her quite often. And, I spent hours in the woods climbing along hills and creek banks acting like I was Krea from "The Two Collars."
While reading this book I not only saw Princess Rosalynn escaping, but I also saw dozens of my own memories of different times during my childhood where I had pretend to be Princess Rosalynn, or else where I'd read bits of her story.
This is truly a delightful book.
One of my favorite books as a child. I highly recommend this and the rest of the trilogy to young readers.
I discovered the Bracken Trilogy in high school and love all three to this day. Gets me out of my head when I need a short reprieve from trying circumstances. Well written, encouraging stories!
