Vermont, picturesque and lovely, attracts visitors from across the country in search for the perfect picture, the perfect fall foliage or perhaps a taste of maple syrup. Stansbury is best known for the odd covered bridge that spans Stansbury Lake and goes nowhere, connecting no roads and serving no known purpose. The locals call it the Lakebridge. Very few know of its mysterious origins and fewer care to know more.
Those visiting the town perhaps take a few snapshots and leave, their curiosity quelled by an uneasy feeling that they shouldn’t think on it anymore. The tourists will eventually leave Stansbury, but its residents strangely linger, seemingly held captive by a force they barely recognize. They also do not think about the town’s mysterious artifact much except in passing, all but Gil, his father, Ben, and a few others. They know of the bridge’s dark history and understand that it is responsible for every horror that ever befell the people of Stansbury: the people who fear the bridge but will not speak of it.
The bridge makes people do things – bad things – so that it can continue to love and care for them all. Some have tried to destroy the bridge, but as long as the bridge is fed with the lives of the innocents of Stansbury it will go on – loving the people of Stansbury. Lakebridge: Spring is the first of a four book cycle revolving around Stansbury and the Lakebridge.
First off I want to say I don't usually read this type of book, the genre I mean, but I'm trying to expand my opinions of some genres and this time it actually turned out great. Second thing is I want to thank Natasha for sending me her books. It means a great deal to me when an author sends me their book. So with that being said lets get back to the review of this great book.
I really enjoyed the flow and plot of this book, I must say I loved each character and how they got to tell the story, their take on it. I love getting to see all the different takes and sides of a story. No story is never only one sided and this one the author does a great job at showing each side.
I liked how descriptive the author was in this book as well, she really is great at painting the picture so you can see it all play out in your head. Plus she was great at the small tidbits of humor she added in this book as well. (Which is one of the main reason's I really enjoyed it)
Let's talk about the cover for a few minutes, at first I didn't like the cover at all. I was thinking what in the world was the author thinking, but it turns out the cover actually really fits this book. I ended up loving the cover in the end.
The characters of this story are very well developed and also flawed which makes them more real to me. This is defiantly a very unique story and a well thought out plot. My only main complaint was really how long the chapters were, but in the end that really didn't matter to me because I enjoyed reading each and every word.
