Plainsong Series

Plainsong/Eventide/Benediction by Kent Haruf I read Plainsong a couple of years ago and loved it.  I had wanted to read the rest of the series and finally got around to it.  Of course, because so much time had passed, I had to start with rereading Plainsong. Plainsong – definitely a character driven story, as nothing... Continue Reading →
