A Bridge Across The Ocean
Title: A Bridge Across the Ocean
Author: Susan Meissner
Genre: Historical Fiction
I see a lot readers time and time again say they feel bored with Historical Fiction; especially WWII books. Well, if you haven’t read this backlist from 2017, A Bridge Across the Ocean, by the fantastic Susan Meissner you simply must! She weaves a ghost tale amoungst the HF. Yes, ghosts. How’s that for interesting and different!
1946 - WWII may be over but the trauma is still fresh for Annaliese, a German ballerina trying to escape her past. By her side is friend, Simone, the wronged daughter of a French Resistance Spy. These ladies are meeting up with hundreds of other European war brides aboard the Queen Mary to be reunited with their husbands in America.
Present Day - Brett visits the haunted Queen Mary at the request of a friend. Her presence is requested because Brett has a family gift of connecting with spirits. This sets her on a course to solve a 70 year old mystery.
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This initially took a bit to hold my attention and I much preferred the historic timeline. That is until it got further along into the mystery. All in all in ended up being a solid read for me. Some books you have to be patient, ya know.
