A spare yet eloquent, bittersweet yet inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together to wrestle with the events of their lives and their hopes for the imminent future. In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf's inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis's wife. His daughter lives hours away in Colorado Springs, her son even farther away in Grand Junction, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in houses now empty of family, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. Their brave adventures—their pleasures and their difficulties—are hugely involving and truly resonant, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writer's enduring contribution to American literature.From the Hardcover edition.

A love story about and for people who are not teenagers or twenty-somethings (finally - thank goodness!). I absolutely loved the pace, voice, and treatment of love and connection in this short, beautiful, evocative, haunting novel.

I found the narrator to be quite pleasant in both tone and voice. The story itself is one of loneliness, second chances, and generational differences. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories about complex family relationships.

I love Haruf's writing, but the theme of this book disappointed. The book is about two lonely people with no anchors in their lives. Sadly, it ends with two lonely people with no anchors in their lives.
