Ellen H Hugh, I'm glad you liked it. I really love Willa Cather, and every one of her books is like a new surprise to me. If you haven't read Death Comes for the Archbishop, I strongly recommend it.

Agnieszka A very good review, Hugh and fine reminder that I too should finally read Cather.

message 3: by Hugh (new)

Hugh Thanks Marita, Ellen and Agnieska. It was first my experience of Cather, but probably won't be the last.

This was also the first book I read because it was chosen for the Mookse Madness knock-out tournament that The Mookse and the Gripes group ran earlier this year (the format of the competition meant that it would have been impossible to read all of the books at the time).

Dolors A very concise review that captures the tone of this marvellous story, Hugh.

Hugh Thanks Linda

Judy I read this a good while ago. I went into it knowing nothing about the book or the author either. So it had the impact of a big wonderful discovery and that impression has never waned.

Hugh Thanks Judy

Petra Really nice, Hugh! I'm a big Willa Cather fan. So glad you enjoyed this one, too.

Hugh Thanks Petra

Suzy I'm also a big Willa Cather fan, Hugh, and especially loved this book. I enjoyed reading your perspective, beautifully said. Cather's Nebraska is vividly realised . . . I think she is exceptional at writing about place! You might enjoy Willa Cather: A Pictorial Memoir, which tells the story of her life in photos. Might not be easy to find, but worth looking for.
