The book was a very light, fast read. Wouldn't recommend it.

A comforting book about a family and friends in a small rural town. I could relate to the character Dad, as I am approaching that age, and having grown up in a small town, I could appreciate the values and simplicity of life. A pleasant read.

What a heart warming book about family and friends coming together at the end of a husband's life in a small town setting. I will look for other books by this author.

This is the third in a trilogy of books about the people of the small town of Holt in northern Colorado. It can be read as a stand alone. This novel is exquisitely beautiful. Every scene touches the heart. The ordinary is made extraordinary. Life, while full of sorrow, is also full of joy and loveliness. Every word is a treasure. Read this book, and then read the first two: Plainsong and Eventide.
