from the back cover:
"On Friday noon, July the twentieth, 1714, the finest bridge in all Peru broke and precipitated five travelers into the gulf below." With this celebrated sentence Thornton Wilder begins The Bridge of San Louis Rey, one of the towering achievements in American fiction and a novel read throughout the world.

by chance, a monk witnesses the tragedy. Brother Juniper then embarks on a quest to prove that it was divine intervention rather than chance that led to the deaths of those who perished in the tragedy. His search leads to his own death and to the author's timeless investigation into the nature of love and meaning of the human condition.
