4.00 · 1 ratings · Published: Apr 11th, 2017 {{ book.ratingTitle }}
Roberto, a bank employee in Milan, dreams of walking among the stars - literally on a bridge into the sky. When he moves to the island of Sardinia with his mother, these visions intensify and he encounters two intriguing women who become crucial to his stellar explorations. Barbara, intoxicating and bewitching, has business and scholarly contacts all over the world who help launch his new career. Lucia, sensual and pragmatic, takes a practical approach to life that keeps him grounded.

With their guidance, Roberto embarks on a journey of discovery that includes revealing regressions into his past lives, visits to astronomical observatories in Europe and the United States, and a trip to Africa to the land of the Dogon, a mysterious people whose knowledge of the Sirius Star System predates modern times by many centuries.

Bridge Through the Stars is a powerful romance…an aspirational, coming-of-age story that deals with our origins, as well as our prior and current role in the universe while seeking our future among the stars.


“An evocative, romantic, thought-provoking read, Journey Beyond 2012 deals with issues we can all relate to in an original, imaginative way. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel.” --- Derek Han, International concert pianist

“Piero Rivolta gives us a refreshing alternative to the dystopian scenarios predicted for the world when the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. Instead, he offers a quiet meditation on the nature of our existence, an exposition on the hope for mankind to awaken to the goodness and creativity that lie within each of us.” --- Donna Marie Smith, Librarian, Palm Beach County Library System, West Palm Beach, Florida

“Piero Rivolta’s engaging novel, Journey Beyond 2012, is a cosmic morality tale that is brimming with anticipation. Through the lens of a philosophical kaleidoscope laced with wisdom, the story simultaneously takes us forward and backwards in time. Its variable themes include Wall Street, the politics of innuendo and distortion, and the DNA of survival.” --- Stephanie Dale, Author, My Pilgrim’s Heart

“If you’re going to read one novel before the world ends on December 21st, 2012, make it Piero Rivolta’s provocative Journey Beyond 2012!” --- Rik Feeney, Author, book coach
