Greek cuisine, smog and domestic drudgery was not the life Australian musician, Melody, was expecting when she married a Greek music promoter and settled in Athens, Greece. Keen to play in her new shoes, though, Melody trades her guitar for a 'proper' career and her music for motherhood. That is, until she can bear it no longer and plots a return to the stage--and the person she used to be. However, the obstacles she faces along the way are nothing compared to the tragedy that awaits.

This novel is accompanied by an all-original soundtrack, written and performed by the author, entitled, Melody Hill: On the Other Side. If you purchase this book, please send your receipt to Jessica via her website, and she'll send you the soundtrack for free.

Review quote

"This is one of those books that's so familiar, and filled with so much emotion, you'll be crawling for the door." Leigh Talbert Moore, author of The Truth About Faking and Rouge

"Jessica Bell paints a claustrophobic vision of life where domesticity becomes a ever-diminishing prison cell. With gripping prose and terse dialogue, String Bridge is a powerful debut novel from a very talented writer." Talli Roland, bestselling author of Build a Man

"Warning: Do not read String Bridge unless you have plenty of spare time. Jessica Bell hooks the reader with a story line so powerful it consumes you." Glynis Smy, author of Maggie's Child

"String Bridge was a wonderful book. One theme is that if you do not have people supporting you in reaching your dreams, you will not take the next step. ... halfway into the book, I really was glued to it. I realized that I was reading part of my life. The author did a wonderful job of creating the story." Mary Barrett, Book Reviewer for The Nashville News (Illinois)

"String Bridge caught my attention from the first paragraph to the last. Jessica Bell wraps her story around you like a thick, fragrant Greek breeze you don't want to leave. From her vibrant descriptions to the plot twists that could make anyone gulp back tears, I fell in love with this book. Not only did this poignant story strike rich, beautiful chords within me, it made me look at myself and my own relationships in a way I won't forget easily. If you love a deep, musical journey in your novels, put this one on your must-read list!" Michelle Davidson Argyle, author of The Breakaway
