it was amazing
Read in February, 2008

A book about marriage and the people we love and keep as companions. The book takes place in the west in the mid- to late-1800s, centered around a woman following her husband from mining job to mining job while she tries to make a family. The story is told by her grandson, who in the 1970s, is writing her story. I enjoyed the storytelling and the time and place of this book, as well as the interweaving of the past and present. I'm still digesting Stegner's themes and what I think he's trying to say with this book, but I enjoyed every minute of reading this book and finished it a month sooner than I had planned.
