• Hardcover: 320 pages
• Publisher: Harper Wave (May 3, 2016)

A fifty-year-old Bridge game provides an unexpected way to cross the generational divide between a daughter and her mother. Betsy Lerner takes us on a powerfully personal literary journey, where we learn a little about Bridge and a lot about life.

By turns darkly funny and deeply moving, The Bridge Ladies is the unforgettable story of a hard-won—but never-too-late—bond between mother and daughter.

The Bridge Ladies reminded me of Tuesdays with Morrie, except it takes place on Mondays and has five Morries. Exquisitely written.” — Will Schwalbe, author of the New York Times bestseller The End of Your Life Book Club

“This is the best book about mothers and daughters I’ve read in decades, maybe ever.” — Amy Chua, Yale Law Professor and author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America

“A beautifully written, bittersweet story of ladies of a certain age and era.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This is a book with heart and feeling.” — George Hodgman, author of Bettyville

“In Lerner’s beautifully observed account, Bridge becomes both a literal and figurative pathway to repairing an even more precious bond: her own relationship to her mother.” — Deborah Tannen, author of You Just Don’t Understand and You’re Wearing THAT?
