“What happens when you lose everything? This radiant debut gets at the dark beating heart of survival, set against a backdrop of differing geography, beliefs, cultures, and races, in prose as intricate as a jazz fugue. Blazingly original and fiercely smart, A Narrow Bridge shows that who we love is really who we are.”
Caroline Leavitt, New York Times–bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You.


A Narrow Bridge is a moving story about the intersection between love and loss and an unsentimental exploration of the role of faith in healing. I held my breath until the very last word of this cinematic, compassionate, and compelling debut.”
Michelle Brafman, author of Bertrand Court and Washing the Dead.


“A gripping, heartbreaking, ultimately uplifting story of two broken people and the healing power of love. Beautifully drawn, the writing keeps you riveted page after fast-turning page.”
Jeffrey Richman, six-time Emmy-winning executive producer of Modern Family and Frasier.


“A beautifully written, imaginative, and poignant testimony to the power of love and the limits of faith.”
Steven Z. Leder, senior rabbi at Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles, one of Newsweek’s Ten Most Influential Rabbis in America.


“I couldn’t put this book down, beginning by being drawn in by one of the most compelling first lines I have ever read. This multicultural debut is about two very different people, from very diverse circumstances and backgrounds....Ultimately, this is a beautiful examination of human connection and finding a reason to live again after all hope is gone.”
Terry Gilman, owner of Mysterious Galaxy bookstore in San Diego and a prominent book-event manager.
