One of the reasons I joined the book club is to expand my choice of reading material. I have just finished reading the above book for the book club and I am so glad it was chosen, it is a wonderful story.
For those of you that haven't read it, it is set in 1965 in Iowa. The story is about a chance meeting between a farmers wife, Francesca and Robert Kincaid a National Geographic photographer.
The start of the book is intriguing, beacuse it told of a meeting between the author and Francesca's grown up children. They had approached the author with a view to writing this story about their mother and Kincaid. At this time you are not told why, and this made me want to read further.
Without telling you the whole story and ruining the ending for you, I found it thought provoking. emotional, happy and sad. This chance meeting influenced these two people for the rest of their lives. I loved it and would really recommend reading it.
