“The Bridge Ladies reminded me of Tuesdays with Morrie, except it takes place on Mondays and has five Morries. Exquisitely written, in this book are portraits of five women whose like we won’t see again. I devoured it in one greedy sitting, and started re-reading as soon as I finished.” (Will Schwalbe, author of the New York Times bestseller The End of Your Life Book Club).
Our second in this series features Betsy Lerner, author of several books including New York Times Bestseller Calling All Minds With Temple Grandin.

She also received the Tony Godwin Publishing Prize for Editors.
