Plainsong – Kent Haruf

23-Plainsong_coverBeautifully lyrical book in which the author manages to convey the heart of a whole community by spotlighting a few people in a small Colorado town.  Included are a lonely teacher, a pair of boys abandoned by their mother, and a pair of crusty bachelor farmers charged with caring for a pregnant teenager.  This book is a wonderful, feel good read and richly deserving of its status as a National Book Award Finalist.
