Well, it’s that time of year again. The week of love is here (otherwise known as the week of desperately trying to find a card that doesn’t look like you picked it up last minute at the supermarket round the corner).
We’ve been getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit here at the agency and we thought it was about time we asked Darley’s angels to decide once and for all what the best love story of all time is.
We’ll be posting a new answer every day this week and today we are asking PA to Darley himself and our Office Manager, Andrea Messent:
Andrea, what is the best love story of all time?
The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller.
This is the true story of photographer Robert Kincaid who has a chance encounter with housewife Francesca Johnson while passing through Iowa and they fall in love.
I could not put this beautiful, mesmerising book down and it stayed with me a long time after I’d put it down. It was a touching and also passionate story about two star-crossed lovers and I cried my eyes out!
What do you think? Is The Bridges of Madison County the best love story of all time? Let us know in the comments.
