“Like some of the best, most compelling works of fiction, sense of place is a character in Russo's Bridge of Sighs. Bridges in upstate New York and, more famously, in Venice set the stage for this rich, fascinating story of families, friends, coming of age, and late-in-life hardships. Book groups will eagerly digest the ordinary details, plus discuss the extraordinary circumstances of real life -- wonderful!”
