Author: Jeffrey Perren

Genre: Historical Fiction/Suspense

Summary (from Goodreads):

A maritime archaeologist recovers Ireland’s earliest bridge near Clonmacnoise Monastery – only to find it intact after 1,200 years underwater.

What could account for this astonishing longevity – and why are his colleagues and the Church desperate to stop him finding out? And why is his consummate love his greatest enemy?

Griffin Clonmac will go through hell to find out.


I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Clonmac’s Bridge has a lot of history and drama as well as a little romance and some twists.

I like the way this is actually 2 different stories in different centuries that are connected by a bridge. Jeffrey Perren’s writing flows well and is very descriptive. There were times it was a little too descriptive, though, such as the when they were building the bridge, but that’s my personal taste.

The main characters, Griffin and Maria and Riordan, are all driven people with morals which seem to be lacking in many of the characters. Almost all of the people who are against what they are doing are not realistic because they are so evil. The one exception is Miguel who truly loves Mari and tries to do the right thing.

Clonmac’s Bridge is a good story that kept my interest throughout. I think anyone who likes historical fiction and suspense would enjoy it.
