On the fence btw 3 and 4 stars. The beautiful writing style takes it higher bc Strout is very gifted at writing. Her characters are raw, full of secrets that you never feel completely at home with them. In this novel, Tyler is a minister whose vibrant, showy wife has died leaving him with 2 young girls. The title if the book and the hymn interweave the entire story which I liked but not enough to wow me. It was a fast read however towards the end I was in a hurry to be done with all the heaviness and had some light shed on questions.
