Life is about relationships. We're relating all the time, to ourselves, others, and life. The most important relationship we have is with ourselves because it influences every other relationship. Relationships are about communication. If we want to live connected, fulfilled, meaningful lives we'll want to learn to communicate with ourselves and others in positive, constructive ways.
Communication is ultimately the powerful force that creates our entire experience of living.

On New Year’s Eve, 1960, Acacia turns thirteen. Her birthday wish is to be courageous enough to cross the old, dilapidated bridge. She and her best friend, Dwight want to find out why a light is shining in the deserted migrant camp where a girl’s body was found three years before.
The teens cross The Bridge that night and encounter a man living in an old cabin. He invites them in, but fear sends then running home.
The following day the teens spy on the man, trying to find out what he’s doing over there. Soon they discover someone is spying on them; thus the adventure of their lives begins.
The next year, Acacia is brutally attacked. With her assailant wandering free, she finds solace and protection from Dwight, her eccentric next-door neighbor, Mrs. A, and a Native American man who lives off the land. Acacia heals physically, but to thrive emotionally, she'll have to learn that there's more than one way to see things. Ultimately, she'll have to leave her judgments behind and journey over the bridge of curiosity, tolerance, and truth.
This is a YA (Young Adult) coming-of-age story. The Bridge deals with social, political, and religious themes related to injustice, intolerance, and acceptance.
"If a touch of True Detective was woven together with To Kill a Mockingbird against a backdrop of John Steinbeck, you'd set the stage for the story Lili Sinclaire has told with The Bridge. It's an inspiring tale, as dark and twisting as it is warm and inspiring. I highly recommend it.”
"This book was amazing. Impossible to put down. The Bridge has every possible adventure you can imagine. I am so glad I purchased this book and recommend it to all who want suspense, drama, love, family issues and every other aspect of a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat."
"The Bridge is a super powerful book! I really enjoyed the ending. Beautifully written. There were parts in it where I was literally so choked up with the emotion of it all I was crying. There were so many plot twists that it kept me actively engaged and unable to put it down. It would make a wonderful movie!" H. Smith, Teacher
"The Bridge touches on ALL the universal questions we ponder throughout our lives - good-bad, love, death, cruelty and where it comes from, and the basic truth that our perspective on the events in our lives creates the life we live. It’s about questioning, opening, and growing - how those things change us and we are always changing." S. Akerstein, retired teacher
The Bridge is an allegorical tale that brings to life two other books by Ms. Sinclaire – The Fork in the Path and its companion, The Fork Trail Guide. The emphasis in these self-help books is on mindful choices. In The Bridge, it is Acacia’s researched and mindful choices that lead her to the story’s end. M. Robinson, college teacher
