At last, the rest of the story… Ten years and twelve million copies after the first printing of The Bridges of Madison County, Robert James Waller brings to a poignant conclusion his story of the love affair between a wandering photographer and the conventional wife of an Iowa farmer. In A Thousand Country Roads, Robert Kincaid initially finds himself with little but memories—memories of a lonely existence lived mostly on the road and memories of Francesca Johnson, the woman whose passion he stirred so briefly and with such power. Kincaid takes to the road again in what becomes a journey of discovery and surprise. With his dog Highway beside him, Kincaid begins a long winding run back to Roseman Bridge in Madison County, Iowa, returning to the place of his great love affair. Living her own solitary life, Francesca still visits Roseman Bridge and reflects on her days and nights with Robert Kincaid. Cherishing the memory of the strange wandering man who changed her world, she vows to search for him.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“After ten long years, Robert James Waller takes us back to Bridges—and it’s worth the trip.” Time
“A serious writer who wrestles with the big issues. Death. Aging. Loneliness. The inevitable humiliations that physical frailty brings.” USA Today
“Waller is a gifted writer in many ways, with a deft turn of phrase and a keen sense of setting.” Library Journal
“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…The book comes alive with Bond’s thoughtful interpretation.” AudioFile
