Review: A Bridge Across the Ocean

Available now: A Bridge Across the Ocean by Susan Meissner

***3/5 stars-liked it

A supernatural historical mystery from the bestselling author of Secrets of a Charmed Life.

Recommended readers:

  • fans of the historical and present-day mystery revealed in dueling chapters
  • fans of supernatural mystery

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3/5 for characters
  • 3/5 for plot
  • 3/5 overall


This plot and character-driven page turner follows the fate of three women: two survivors of World War II and a modern woman with the ability to see and talk to ghosts. While I have read novels with reference to the presence of ghosts before, I found found this endlessly-discussed rendering to be rather distracting and difficult to take at face value. Despite this, the storyline is cleverly plotted, and I found myself curious what would happen to the characters (if not their ghosts.) Next stop: a novel by this author that does not focus on the otherworldly.
