Sometimes we have to go far away to find answers to the questions that loom over very heads. Such is the case in this hard-hitting true story of the author and his brilliant and creative father. Struck by a nearly fatal illness while in the ancient city of Venice, the father is saved by an angel-like native. This man, Carlos, goes above and beyond to help unite not only father and son, but son and wife as well. Along with a story to touch the heart, Pat Wholey gives us one of the best travelogues you'll ever read. As the drama plays out, you'll feel as though you're walking along the canals, meeting the people and experiencing the sights, sounds and aromas of Venice for yourself!

Patrick Wholey is married to a wonderful wife and has three beautiful children. He lives in Rhode Island, near a beach. This is his first book.Review:
You think you know your own family but you may discover, that you don't. CROSSING BRIDGES gently reveals the author's own struggles and growth as a young man, husband, and father and the ever-deepening bond in his own father-son relationship. Reading this very tender book helped me to really know, understand, and appreciate ... people I already love. --Dennis Wholey, host of PBS's THIS IS AMERICA
An exceptional debut. Humorous and honest...fearless, entertaining writing. --Matt Wunsch, SRI Newspapers
