I loved this book. A great tale of a love affair lasting only a short time, but leaving memories with two people that lasted a life time.

This is the story of a traveling photographer and a hard working & content farm wife who cross paths when he is on her street and asks her for directions. She is alone from her loving family for several days and they become extremely intrigued with eachother, and they quickly let their guards down and fall deeply in love. It's a story of unattainable love. It is a beautiful romance story that will have you laughing, smiling, and in tears!!

This is a great story of love and commitment to family. I found it hard to get into the story in the first half of the first chapter. After that, I couldn't put the book down. It is a very quick read.

Read this one in just one sitting. A classic love story; everyone should read once in their lives.

Not super impressed. I've got to say, I expected much more out of a book that has sold millions of copies, but it was nothing spectacular. At a short 171 pages it was a quick read. I think it took me an hour or two total. I found myself doing a lot of skimming though. The author tends to go off on tangents (which is bad news for an already short book). Don't be fooled by the way the book pretends to be a true story... it is fiction.

This was a great afternoon read. I loved the flow of the book and the way the story was woven into both lives. Gives you pause to think. What would you do? Characters weren't all that well developed since it was just a couple of days together. Didn't really like how an affair was romanticized into something to smile about years later.

A wonderfully written true story of two hearts that came together but couldn't stay together. This has always been one of my favorite movies and now that I've read the book, it's one of my favorite books!

Who doesn't love Bridges of Madison County? What I wouldn't give to be swept off my feet, if only for a week of my life.
