Read in January, 2003

The book takes place in the Colorado plains. The writing is great, deceptively simple. A teenager gets pregnant and is taken care of by two old rancher brothers. Also liked the movie and heard the author talk at the library. The sequel, Eventide, was equally as good.

Ardee This is one of the best books I've read, Kent Haruf was wonderful to listen to when I saw him speak in Boulder; and I am anxiously awaiting the new play, Eventide, at the Denver Center Theater.
