"A hauntingly understated love story, set in small town America, that stays with you long after you've reluctantly finished reading the final page" (Terence Stamp)
"We all dream of the chance meeting, that moment when we feel we are really living. Waller shows us that it can happen, with compelling assurance" (Sunday Telegraph) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
'The Bridges of Madison County' is the story of Robert Kincaid, world-class photographer, and Francesca Johnson, an Iowa farm wife. Given to nomadic ways, Kincaid is a strange, almost mystical traveller, a man who feels displaced and out of harmony with his time. Francesca Johnson, once a young war bride from Italy, lives with the flickering memories of her girlhood dreams.
Each of them is content, yet when Kincaid drives through the heat and dust of an Iowa summer and turns into her farm lane looking for directions, their illusions fall away, and they are joined in an experience of uncommon and stunning beauty, an experience that will haunt them forever.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
