Rachel N. | 1614 comments Addie is a widow in her 70's who gets lonely especially at night. She invites her widowed neighbor Louis to spend the nights with her. This bittersweet tale soon also involves Addie's grandson Jamie. There isn't a lot that happens in this book, it's just a beautifully written book of two people and their lives. I wish Haruf had been able to write more books. I've read Plainsong which I also loved and am looking forward to reading the two other books he wrote.

While there are three books in the "Holt" trilogy - Plainsong / Eventide / Benediction -
Haruf has a total of six books to his credit, plus an additional work he authored in partnership with photographer Peter T Brown : West of Last Chance

So you have 5 other works of his to look forward to. Like you, I wish there were more ....
