Reading - A Thousand Country Roads

A Thousand Country Roads by Robert James Waller

Did Robert Kincaid forget Francesca Johnson? Did she regret her passionate indiscretion with him? And what happened to all his photographs? In this epilogue to THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, Waller takes one more look at the couple famous for their adulterous affair in Iowa. Jim Bond offers a transparent portrayal of Waller's commentary, told in a style that resembles the Iowa landscape. Exaggerated characterizations of the more colorful bit players in the story heighten the solemnity of the main characters' emotional involvement, and their soul-searching reveries.
