After Addie's unexpected visit the bold proposition that came with it, the duo embark on a love story at a time when they both believed their lives were all but over.

I absolutely adored this book.

This is by far one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. It was simple, delicate and completely moving.

The overwhelming humanity and kindness of these characters made for a truly emotional reading experience. The tenderness that these characters radiate touches your heart and draws you into this story from the start.

The story itself is equal parts heartwarming and heartbreaking. With such emotion radiating off the pages, the addition of perfectly timed humour really grounds this book.

Our Souls At Night is Kent Haruf's final novel, yet my first time reading his work, but certainly not my last time.

I havent stopped raving about this book since I read it, I have recommended it to everyone I know. I honestly can't think of a bad word to say about this book.

Our Souls At Night by Kent Haruf is a once in a life time book, and I am a better person because of it.
