I want to move to Holt, Colorado. While reading Plainsong, I became entranced with the characters and wanted to know what happened. In Eventide, Haruf tells me -- the two older brothers, the McPherons, are saddened with Victoria, the single mother they took in, moves off to college. And he adds new characters that I want to sit down and talk to at the local coffee shop -- a young boy living alone with his grandfather; a neighbor whose husband deserts her and her two daughters; and two children of a disabled couple who are living a horrid life without much chance of survival, without the intervention of a social worker. There is great sadness in this book, as there is great sadness in life - but there is joy and I hope there is a sequel. this was the winter in Holt - I look forward to the spring.
