The True Love Story of Madison County
It’s eight years after Bridges was published, and Richard’s son, Michael, has just discovered a series of audio tapes his late father made in an effort to come to terms with Francesca’s affair and save his marriage. Michael sends them to his sister, Carolyn, and gets another shock in return. She has received letters from Flo Miller, a former high school classmate of their father. In them, Flo tells of her life-long love for Richard.
Michael creates a manuscript alternating Richard’s tapes with Flo’s letters.
He calls it The True Love Story of Madison County.
