The Tie That Binds
Kent Haruf writes about ordinary people in such an extraordinary way. I read his other novels, "Plainsong" and "Where you Once Belong" (you'll find both here) before reading this. I'm glad that I saved it for last. He made me realize, once again, that there are NO boring subjects. Read this novel. I guarantee that you will be drawn deeply into the lives of the characters he has created. I can't get this one out of my mind.
