When a bridge collapses in the Highlands of Scotland, dozens of people vanish into the river below. A car hired by a woman tourist was filmed pulling onto the bridge moments before it fell. Now numbered among the missing, the woman seizes her chance to start her life over. But her new path takes her no farther than a wooden cabin on the riverbank, where she seeks rebirth and freedom from her old self.

Review quote

[Her work has] both evoked and matched in achievement... such masters as William Trevor. -- Barry Forshaw A tense and beautifully told tale. * The Scots Magazine * A thoughtful, multi-layered novel... it cannot fail to set the reader thinking about the plight of those who go missing each year, the basic human need to survive and adapt, and the metaphorical bridges that divide and connect us and what can be done to cross them. * The Daily Mail * Across the Bridge is an intriguing book - for not only are the main characters keeping secrets from each other, they are also keeping secrets from themselves and ultimately from the reader. * The Regency Magazine *
