Publisher's Summary

Two strangers, opposite coasts, and abridge that silently beckons.

Katie Connelly has lived in San Francisco all her life. Her late father made his career as an ironworker on the Golden Gate Bridge, and the many stories of him trying to save jumpers still haunt her. When she's asked to write a history about the bridge, her research uncovers a secret journal hidden in her father's desk, pages of familiar advice penned by the hand of a stranger. The scribbled words tell of a promise ring and a distant love, clues that Katie hopes may answer her own unresolved sorrow.

Across the country, Dave Riley, a marketing executive in New York, encounters sorrows of his own. As he grasps at straws after tragedy strikes his family, a once whimsical daydream quickly turns into an obsession: he must ride his motorcycle across the Golden Gate Bridge on the Fourth of July.

Does the bridge hold answers for both Katie and Dave? Or will it only add to their heartache? The puzzling words left behind in a long-forgotten journal hold the key to the truth that they will discover on The Other Side of the Bridge.

Enjoyable enough story, terrible female narrator

I wasn’t drawn in to the point that I couldn’t stop listening, but the story was enjoyable enough. It was, however, difficult to continue listening because the female narrator sounded as if she was on the very verge of an emotional breakdown for the entire book!!! So exhausting and annoying! Honestly, if it hadn’t been the book for my book club this month, I would definitely returned it because of the female narrator.

Lessons from the bridge

I really enjoyed this story. It was an emotional journey but I was in the mood. The history of the bridge was interesting. I wish I had understood it from this perspective when we lived in San Francisco, many years ago.

Pales in comparison to The Rent Collector

I selected this book due to the author's incredible writing in The Rent Collector
This didn't read like it was from the same author. Writing and storyline seemed sophomoric compared to the richness of the characters and storyline of The Rent Collector.

A great book.

My husband and I listened to this book together. It was a delight. Cameron Wright has a real gift of capturing personalities and describing them so that the reader can identify with the story. We continue to read more of his books.

Read it instead of listen

I loved The Rent Collector, which is why I chose this book. The story is quite good although not as strong as The Rent Collector, a superlative and compelling piece of literature. I might’ve found The…Bridge more appealing had I read it on Kindle or book since both narrators created a negative reading experience for me. The female narrator always seemed on the verge of tears and timid and weak. The male sounded like a radio announcer and pronounced words beginning with a “th” blend as “t.” Both voices distracted from the written word so I suggest not using Audible for this text. Other books on tape have been fabulous and I’m a huge fan of Audible by and large.

Pleasantly Surprised

I did not expect this book to be so enjoyable. It surprised me and I was astounded at the visual images it brought to my mind and how it flowed. I found myself amused, perplexed, and hopeful as I read. Rarely do I find a book that has all those qualities and still manages to not sink into crudity and filth as so many do. Shadow Mountain is a brand I will remember, especially since I live in the shadow of some beautiful mountains. I’ll recommend this one to friends.

A Hallmark movie in book form

I really dislike hallmark movies. I couldn't stop thinking how much this book reminded me of the standard hallmark plot. not my cup of tea but if you like them, you'll like this book.

Bland

An eye roller. Bland and sappy. Time I won’t get back. This book is overrated.
