Bridges of Madison County has to be the best book I have read.I couldn't bring myself to put the book down for obvious reasons...but mainly because I have lived this story myself .I was completely overwhelmed by it.I refuse to let this book out of my hands.

1) Bridges is not based on a true story but of one RJW created in 14 days after a trip to the bridges.
2) He moved to Texas with his wife Georgia of 35 years.
3) They divorced in 1997.
4)He knew his current wife while he was still married.
Hope that helps..thanks for reading!

Quite the most hauntingly beautiful novel. Is it based on fact?

As I know, A Thousand Country Roads and High Plains Tango are sequel to The Bridges of Madison County. I love R.J.Waller and Nicholas Sparks and I'm the editor (simplified Chinese characters) of High Plains Tango and True Believer, Message in a Bottle, The Notebook.

To all the readers of this site, what other books have you read which would fall into the "Bridges" genre? Anyone a Nicholas Sparks fan?

Does anyone have any idea when RJW's new book will be published?
Bill Hiller posts on 1/26/2006 12:24:02 PM
I highly recommend that all of you read RJW's non-fiction work (i.e., his personal essays). In particular, "Old Songs in a New Cafe" is fantastic. There is some overlap of essays in his three collections of essays. Check it out.

I just got High Plains Tango published (Simplified Chinese Characters). Simply it sells good. Waller's readers tell me all kinds of reasons why they love this book: "it tells what's the difference between spirit love and body love"; "giving an image of how sweet a love-making could be"; "Carlisle's devoting to wood craft attracts me so much"...
In June or someday, I'm honored to invite Waller to visit China. All depends. Hi Robert, how's going now? Please let me and readers in China hear that you're ok.

Thank you for your information. I had finished my research paper. Thank you all the same.
I like his novels,and many people had read his novels,but only a few of them remembered his name. So I wrote that research paper to let most of my friends or the people, who had read his novels, remember his name,because he is one of my favorite authors.

In the above book reference is made to a bird of prey called "Timmermans hawk" Fellow birders both here and in Canada are puzzled as we are unable to locate this in any book on Birds of Prey of North America.
This is more than likley a local name
given to a bird of that region. If any one out there can solve this please advise. Many Thanks
