Kent Haruf, award-winning, bestselling author of Plainsong returns to the high-plains town of Holt, Colorado, with a novel of masterful authority. The aging McPheron brothers are learning to live without Victoria Roubideaux, the single mother they took in and who has now left their ranch to start college. A lonely young boy stoically cares for his grandfather while a disabled couple tries to protect their a violent relative. As these lives unfold and intersect, Eventide unveils the immemorial truths about human beings: their fragility and resilience, their selfishness and goodness, and their ability to find family in one another.

Follow up book to Plainsong. The narrative is slow with very detailed description of the miniature of every day life in a small country town in Colorado, occasionally punctured with scenes of violence. Theread more

This book follows the story of the two old bachelor farmers who stole the show in Haruf's earlier book, Plainsong. Haruf writes wonderful scenes, & these characters are ones to love, but the other two side stories are less appealing & don't add up to much beyond the individual scenes.read more

Beautifully written sequel to Plainsong. I was so happy to find this. I was missing the characters from Plainsong so much. It was a bittersweet reunion for me.

Never, ever have I so easily been wrapped up in and identified with characters in a novel as I have with Kent Haruf's Eventide (and Plainsong for that matter). I cannot even say why it was so easy to be pulled into the lives of these characters. There isn't that much really interesting going on in these books. They're just real and true! I never cry when I read a book but I cried and grieved along with Victoria and Raymond when a tragedy struck the family. I felt the utter confusion of the Wallace children. I felt the weight of the world on DJ. Please keep writing Mr. Haruf...hopefully about the town of Holt, Colorado.

I love this author's evocation of small-town America. All the characters, likeable or not, are well-rounded and I was happy to follow them from the previous title.
