The Bridge of San Luis Rey, Paperback
2 out of 5 (1 rating)


An ancient bridge collapses over a gorge in Peru, hurling five people into the abyss.

It seems a meaningless human tragedy. But one witness, a Franciscan monk, believes the deaths might not be as random as they appear.

Convinced that the disaster is a punishment sent from Heaven, the monk sets out to discover all he can about the travellers.

The five strangers were connected in some way, he thinks.

There must be a purpose behind their deaths. But are their lost lives the result of sin? ...Or of love?

Didn't know what to expect of this book - quite a good reflection on why people die when they do
