really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

Okay so I actually enjoyed this one. It was all about people! Willa Cather is very much the observer and I think she has a great knack for aptly descibing people with very little description. I am looking forward to trying out the other stories that were recommended to me.

The story is very simple a boy, Niel, grows up watching and admiring the honorable and engaging Mr. and Mrs. Forrester. He is a man of certain fortitude and his wife beautiful and vivacious. Mostly Niel tells of his interactions and observations of Mrs Forrester, but he also tells of those living in the small town. It is also the tale of a man who loves his wife very much, almost too much.
