Waller views this second book as a companion piece to the first. Waller famously wrote in 11 days. It was a magical experience,'' he said.

Yet Mr. Waller and his agent Aaron Priest are hardly shamed by the rejection. Priest said defiantly. Suppose 9 out of 10 of those readers did not want this book, it would still sell , copies hardcover.
That is a huge best seller. Waller opted out of the system.
He kept his manuscript in his desk for a year, then decided to go with the tiny Hardy company in Alpine, Tex. Waller and his agent will not discuss the details of the deal, which presumably involves some kind of percentage profit sharing. Robert comes across a farm and decides to drive in to get directions, and this is the first time he meets Francesca Johnson.
When he sees her, something stirs inside of him. She walks out to him barefoot, to find out what he needs, and not only does she give him the instructions to get to the seventh bridge, but offers to show him where it is.
He drives Francesca home and she invites him into her home for a cool drink.
That week, her family is away at the Illinois State Fair so Carolyn can exhibit her steer. As the story unfolds, we learn that Francesca is lonely and feeling somewhat neglected.
She is in a too comfortable place in her marriage, which can be very problematic for marriages. Her husband is resistant to change, killing the light inside of her slowly.
Hailing from Naples to Madison County, her life changed radically, with many unrealized dreams. Robert unleashes the fire and passion within this lonely housewife.
It is a pleasure for her to speak to the photographer about cultural things, not topics for discussion in Madison County.
Both Robert and Francesca feel the tug of attraction. After having supper, drinking brandy, and much conversation, he leaves for his motel.
After thinking about it, the lonely housewife wants to see the intriguing photographer again, so she drives to Roseman Bridge, and tacks on a message hoping that he will see it. In the message, Francesca invites Robert to dinner again.
Next morning, through the viewfinder, he spots the white paper, which he removes and places into his pocket, focusing on capturing the scenes before him while the light is right.I know it's been made into a movie yet I've never seen it nor do I know anything about it.
