Not something you expect to do when you finish reading a book , but that’s exactly what I did. I sat back, sighed deeply and was filled with a sense of awhh. That’s the only way I can describe the feeling when I finished the last page, I closed the book and just sat there thinking about the beautiful book I had just read. The 179 pages had such an unexpected impact on me.
Kent Haruf’s OUR SOULS AT NIGHT is so, so beautiful , lovely, kind; graceful all of the yummy words you can think of.
