This review id for both Mrs. Bridge and Mr. Bridge. The following quotation is from Mr. Bridge:

"He wondered...if this is how they would end their lives, accompanying each other so closely, loving each other, touching one another with affection and sympathy, yet singularly alone."

To me this pretty much summed up both novels. A sad yet poignant look at the lives of a couple spanning from the 1920's to the 1940's.
