Bridge of San Luis Rey
by Thornton Wilder
The Bridge of San Luis Rey opens in the aftermath of an inexplicable tragedy--a tiny footbridge in Peru breaks, and five people hurtle to their deaths. For Brother Juniper, a humble monk who witnesses the catastrophe, the question is inescapable: Why those five? Suddenly, Brother Juniper is committed to discover what manner of lives they led--and whether it was divine intervention or a capricious fate that took their lives.
