Bridge Daughter still available!

If you’ve not read the first book in the Bridge Daughter Cycle, you still have a chance!

Bridge Daughter by Jim NelsonHanna Driscoll thinks her thirteenth birthday will be no different than the one before—until her mother explains the facts of life. Hanna is a “bridge daughter,” born pregnant with her parents’ child. In a few months she will give birth and die, leaving her parents with their true daughter…

“Nelson smoothly realizes a provocative alternate present seen through the eyes of naive adolescent Hanna Driscoll. … Hanna is an engaging protagonist, and her thought-provoking story blends action, introspection, and social commentary in a stark but indirect critique of efforts to control female bodies and restrict reproductive rights.”
Publishers Weekly

“A beautiful and compact novel that is both sweet and savage in turn. The most original and compelling novel I’ve read in years. … My favourite novel of 2016.
Katherine Hayton, author of The Three Deaths of Magdalene Lynton and Breathe and Release

“Nelson resists genre categories with elegant, stylistic prose…[an] ambitious psychological thriller.”
– Ramiro Estrada, 5-star Amazon review

“Hanna is a beautiful character that undergoes one of the most trying and tortuous character arcs I’ve ever read…intelligent, gripping, and hard to put down.”
The Drifting Paige, 5 out of 5 review
