I was reminded again, by reading the intro to Bridges of Madison County, that there are actual facts in both of these stories with some creative license to fill in the blanks. These were real people, in spite of what some reviews on the internet say. One only has to read the intro to understand. Robert's story was a wandering kind of story - a hit and miss with a few connections to the past along the way. In this story you get to know Robert Kincaid in a deeper and greater way than when he's attached to Franny's story. You see the seriousness of his work and the nomadic way he lived his life. We see his reclusiveness and wonder then how he was so able to open up to Franny the way he did. We also see he had a story of his own to discover - a past he thought was gone and a future worth finding. Did he find it? Have fun finding out!

I loved this book. I read "The Bridges of Madison County", I saw the movie and my wife and I even visited the bridges in that area. But, I always wondered "What became of Jessica and Robert. This book gave me that information in an enriching and wonderfully romantic manner. This book is every bit as good (if not better) than the original "Bridges of Madison County".
Robert James Waller is one classy writer. He brings life to his characters in a way that draws the reader into the story as if they are right there watching everything unfold in this delightful relationship.

An epilogue to "The Bridges of Madison County" - the rest of the story (and it was very good)!

The Bridges of Madison County was a great book...not movie. This one falls short of the original.

This book is somewhat of a disappointment; only because the original Bridges and movie were so good. You must read the original before this sequel to get a grasp. It is a pleasant read and has a surprise for you!

Good follow-up to the Bridges of Madison County. No guessing at the end - everything is answered - and then some! Good story, some tears, lots of thinking about life and how it happens. And also how you can't go backward. Shows the power of love and the fragility of human emotions. And that sometimes, what you think is true... is; and sometimes it is not.

I liked the followup to Bridges of Madison County but there is nothing like the original. Thousand Country Roads brought closure to many outstanding issues that I had though about - but sometimes, it is nice to imagine in your own mind what transpired in the lives of Francesca and Robert.

Robert Kincaid is one of my all-time favorite characters. Books as simple and elegant as this are very rare.

At last, the rest of the story...Ten years and twelve million copies after the first printing of The Bridges of Madison County, Robert James Waller brings to a poignant conclusion his story of the love affair between a wandering photographer and the conventional wife of an Iowa farmer.

I am probably one of the few people who never read Bridge of Madison County! I was a bit disappointed in this. A fast read, of course, but I was disappointed they didn't get to meet again.

The Last Time, Kincaid's last trip, was great, though.
