This was the bridge where it happened. Everyone knew, but they didn’t talk about it in front of Aaron and Anna. If they waited long enough, Anna would tell the boys about it herself.
Aaron would tell Nancy or Patricia, if they teased him long enough while crossing the bridge. They knew they could persuade him.
It was always fun, getting them to tell the story. “We were very young,” Anna would say, “although not as young as you are now.”
“She was the prettiest girl in town,” Aaron would say, “although not as pretty as you are now.”
Yes, it was always fun to hear the story of how their parents had met, fallen in love, married, had some amazing adventures, and two sets of twins.
Written with wit and skill, Minnie Cooper’s new book, Cross Over the Bridge, will be available in stores on Friday.

Each week, Lisa Ricard Claro of Writing in the Buff, posts a photo or picture
(today's is a photo by Christina Claro), to inspire writer-bloggers to imagine a book, then write a "blurb" about it, of no more than 150 words, which will convince readers to buy it.
