SOUTHEND ON SEA, U.K. - June 3, 2023 - PRLog -- Author Robert James Bridge's newest book A Bolt From the Blue: The Halifax Explosion is historical fiction, based in 1917 on a cold day in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. As everyone was starting their workday, the snowbound scenery would soon become blood begrimed as two ammunition ships collided in the Harbor of Halifax and Dartmouth. Almost two thousand lives were lost on that fateful day and thousands were blinded by flying glass as they ran to office windows wondering if the war had come to them.

This is the story of a young man, aged only fifteen, who goes from a boy to a man in almost a day as he struggles to save the many lives consisting of many school children. This story is of course fiction woven around the true story using fictional characters throughout to avoid reviving memories for living relatives. This is essentially John's story, a story of heroism and courage we can only admire. A red-letter day it was called in the local papers, and without help from their local neighbors in Boston who supplied medicine and doctors as the injured piled up along with the dead. A story that should never be forgotten.

At 82 years old, Robert James Bridge still writes, simply because he loves what he does; even if it pays very little. He lives with his long-suffering wife, who had recently been given the all-clear from cancer. She has helped him continue to write and given him the inspiration to carry on in his work.  This book is sure to excite history buffs and fictional book lovers alike.
