The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer

The Invisible Bridge tells the story of three brothers, who are Hungarian Jews, through World War II. Most of the story revolves around Andras Levi. He arrives in Paris in 1937 with a scholarship to study architecture and a promise to deliver a secret letter. The letter brings him to Karla, a woman with a mysterious past. With the outbreak of war, Andras loses his scholarship and returns to Hungary with Karla. Andras and his brother, Tibor, are sent to a forced labor camp. In Andras' absence, Karla is blackmailed to keep her secret hidden. The Hungarian government tried to keep its Jews from being sent to Nazi concentration camps, but acquiesced as the war dragged on. Julie Orringer's debut novel has received positive reviews with the Los Angeles Times saying, "It is a life powerfully, unsentimentally and inspiringly evoked in this gracefully written and altogether remarkable first novel."
