The Bridge of San Luis Rey, Paperback

The Bridge of San Luis Rey Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



An ancient bridge collapses over a gorge in Peru, hurling five people into the abyss.

It seems a meaningless human tragedy. But one witness, a Franciscan monk, believes the deaths might not be as random as they appear.

Convinced that the disaster is a punishment sent from Heaven, the monk sets out to discover all he can about the travellers.

The five strangers were connected in some way, he thinks.

There must be a purpose behind their deaths. But are their lost lives the result of sin? ...Or of love?
