Next up on David’s Book Blurg I’m reviewing The Bridge of Little Jeremy by Indrajit Garai.
Here’s the blurb
Jeremy’s mother is about to go to prison for their debt to the State. He is trying everything within his means to save her, but his options are running out fast.
Then Jeremy discovers a treasure under Paris.
This discovery may save his mother, but it doesn’t come for free. And he has to ride over several obstacles for his plan to work.
Meanwhile, something else is limiting his time…
The Bridge of Little Jeremy is a well written and moving tale of Jeremy and his dog Leon.
Jeremy lives with his mother but the family are struggling to survive.. at first Jeremy doesn’t know how bad things are but he’s an inquisitive little lad and soon learns the truth… To make things worse Jeremy isn’t in the best of health.
While selling his drawings to help make some money for the family Jeremy stumbles onto a family secret that goes back many many years.. he’s sucked into the past and how it can help the present.
The characters were well-developed for me.. each fit perfectly and I liked them all… the author didn’t give too much of the characters away, I think if they had they could have overshadowed Jeremy and this is his tale.I could connect with their emotions though and understood their actions and that really kept me engrossed in the tale.
The plot was an easy 4*… all the way till the ending that moved me so much it hits the 5*. At the end of the story I felt happy and sad.. confused emotions.. I needed time to reflect on what I felt was a powerful message delivered by the author… don’t take anything for granted.
