this thing between us

Part memoir, part inspired by the best-selling novel The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller, This Thing Between Us reveals how that once-in-a-lifetime unbridled love penetrates the soul and remains imprinted there forever.


Journeying by way of poetic verse and photography, author Ben Stellino captures the splendor of love’s many shades. She construes the mind-set and emotions of Robert Kincaid and Francesca Johnson at the end of their four days together—after which they never see each other again.


Stellino unveils her personal story spanning over 30 years, in the process drawing parallels that reflect the essence and magic of Robert Kincaid and Francesca Johnson’s emotional journey.
