About This Book
Waller's latest book is centered on the son of Robert Kincaid, the hero of Waller's best-selling The Bridges of Madison County (1992). His name is Carlisle McMillan, and readers first leaned about him in the sequel to that book, A Thousand Country Roads (2002). Carlisle, an enigmatic drifter, has wandered from California to South Carolina and is headed back west when he happens on the small South Dakota town of Salamander. In the local diner, he meets one woman, the unhappily married Gally Deveraux, and then becomes entranced by another, ethereal outsider Susanna Benteen, whom he catches sight of one night. Carlisle decides to make his home in Salamander so that he can avoid "the great economic colossus called progress." Poor Carlisle's timing couldn't be worse; in the hopes of invigorating the area, a plan is afoot to build a highway that will run right by Salamander and right through the old house that Carlisle has spent months renovating. Feelings about the highway divide the town, but Carlisle is determined to fight it with everything he has.
