This is a short book, 258 pages, and is a quick read, but the story will stay with you a long, long time.
All in all, I am still a great fan of Haruf, and this book will not disappoint, but it is more gritty than his Plainsong, one of my all time favorite novels.
Kent Haruf writes with a beautiful prose that draws the reader into the everyday lives of characters who are real.
Just days after I saw in the paper that the author had passed away, I checked to see if he had written anything that I missed. Proud to say I have read ALL of his books. Read morePublished 2 days ago by karen m gorrell

As his other books, not action packed but an enjoyable read of different characters in a small Colorado plains town. I really liked it.Published 8 days ago by S. Hoover
This has been called a transitional or insubstantial work by some reviewers. Not so. Rich characters. Fine story telling. If you liked his other books, you'll like this one.Published 9 days ago by Richard William Ray
I've read all of Kent Haruf's books on the town of Holt. His writing is pure poetry, and the stories are all engaging. However, this is fairly dark by comparison.Published 12 days ago by ramotswe
I have enjoyed all of Kent Harufs books. This one feels more complex but it has been several years since Plainsong and Eventide. Simple but lovely characters.Published 12 days ago by Kelly L. Livesay
