In crossing his
Bridge, Bach brings into radiant prose the practical meaning of the kind of love that endures, a love that implies unchallenged trust and uncompromised commitment.
Richard Bach has written a new book that seems certaindestinedto find an audience, perhaps, like
Jonathan, an enormous one. Bach writes with a sincere, ingenuous enthusiam... a style that is a mirror of the writer, who is open and engaging, a romantic and something of a mystic who is unembarrassed by beliefs that some people find, well, weird.
Bach's distinctive, thought-provoking style is at its finest in
Bridge... a beautifully written, absorbing story of a man learning to listen toand trusthis own heart and soul.
Like his two best-known books,
Jonathan Livingston and Illusions, this book is engaging. It's simple, personal, has an energy of honesty and talks about love, fear, intimacy, happiness, lonelinessideas and feelings every person considers.
He writes with such crystal-clear, poetic brilliance, that his 'old' ideas appear ever fresh and new. Like a bright star shining in the dark night of the soul... a testimony to the facxt that dreams need not diethat faith, hope, and love still live in our age of anxiety.
To a public that desperately wants to believe in love, Bach says: Hang on. Take heart. There is such a thing as a soulmate.
Incurable romantics and believers in soulmates... will find this book enchanting and wise, filled with meaningful insights and poetic passages.... There are many who will enjoy the fairy-tale quality of Bach's writing as he chronicles his quest for the magic and radiance of eternal and predestined love.
Jonathan in the early 1970s became the world's soaring spiritual antidote for the turbulent 1960s, Bridge shows promise as the love story of the 1980s.
Richard Bach has done it again.... His thoughts should be familiar to anyone who ever searched or is searching for the 'perfect' mate.... Although other authors have written the same things many times over, none of them can touch Richar Bach for his unerring ability to create beauty.
Bach writes entertainingly and convincingly about life's mysterious enchantment, and about sharing it and making it real. His sensitivity, his fears, and his sense of humor vibrate on every page. If you know someone who is looking for a soulmate, give him or her this book. But first, read it yourself.
