Journalist and memoirist Susan Allen Toth brings her special England vivdly to life as she recalls her many trips there over the years, where she explored the countryside, traveled both second-class and in luxury, theatre-hopped, hunted for ghosts, and honeymooned. Humorous, bittersweet, and wonderfully eccentric, this is a delightful remembrance to be savored by those who love to travel or just dream of it. "I love MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH ENGLAND. It is written clearly and with a understanding that far supasses any feeling of condescension or superiority or general quaintness among the natives, all of which I detect in books about other countries."

I enjoy travel memoirs, especially those dealing with the UK. My Love Affair with England is a great little book that showcases what the author loves about England. The book is divided into chapters with each of these being separate experiences on her travels. At times, the experiences are a little dated in relation to present day, but they are still wonderful insights into the author's feelings for her favorite travel spot. ( )

Rambling book of memories. Lack of story--felt incoherent and babbling. ( )

With her first trip to London as a college student in 1960, American professor Toth was a confirmed Anglophile. Over the decades she kept returning, as a new teacher clumsily guiding a group of students on a literary course, through a short and rocky marriage, as a mother with a hectic schedule and an unhappy child, and many times with a new husband who learns to love England too. She hitchhikes, discusses food,sheepdog trials, English gardens and walking the countryside.

And all that sounds pretty unoriginal and sappy, doesn't it? The title alone is probably why I let it sit on the shelf for at four years even though it came with high recommendations. I'll say that Toth would likely have a bigger audience if her titles were more intriguing. For example, the essay title "1978: A Shady Patch" is about the seven month period when she, her daughter and a friend shared a London flat as Toth taught a course at a nearby college. Newly divorced, with little money and even less time, Toth ends up renting the flat belonging to the brother of the infamous Lord Lucan, a place Toth refers to as "The Murder Flat". The friend, brought along as a live-in babysitter, can't deal with Toth's six year-old and both women have brief flings with men who disappear. Now would you expect all that from the title? ( )

Lovely. How I would like to go on the leisurely walks along the cliff paths Toth describes so beautifully.

Very nice indeed. Not quite Bill Bryson but still a nice addition to my own love affair with England. ( )

The past lives on, in art and memory, but it is not static: it shifts and changes as the present throws its shadows backwards. The landscape also changes, but far more slowly; it is a living link between what we were and what we have become.

For James: Who has taken me where I always wanted to go
For Jennifer: Who will travel to places I never saw
But most of all for Henry and Ida, with luv
High on a hill above Padstow, an old fishing village on the North Cornwall coast, a footpath leads along the estuary toward the cliffs edging the sea. Several benches have been placed on this path, and on mild days, villagers sit here, alone or chatting together, and look out across the water to the green hills beyond. On the back of one bench is a small plaque, inscribed "One Day, Henry! Luv, Ida."
