A plain story about plain people that is told plainly beautifully. It took me 7 years to get around to reading this 1999 finalist for the National Book Award. Sorry I hadn't gotten to it sooner. Kent Haruf introduces each character in his or her own chapter. Their stories are then carefully woven together into what I felt was a realistic conclusion. The ends are all not neatly tied up but I found it very satisfying.
