In her luminous and long-awaited new novel, bestselling author Elizabeth Strout welcomes readers back to northern New England in the late 1950s.

Tyler Caskey has come to love West Annett. The short, brilliant summers and the sharp, piercing winters fill him with awe—as does his congregation, full of good people who seek his guidance and listen earnestly as he preaches. But after suffering a terrible loss, Tyler finds it hard to return to himself as he once was and his congregation begins to question his leadership and propriety.

In prose clear and saturated with feeling, Elizabeth Strout draws readers into the details of ordinary life in a way that makes it extraordinary. All is considered—life, love, God, and community, and all is made new by this writer’s boundless compassion and graceful prose.

    " This is a great book and my first time reading one from this author. Lots of reviews telling you why it is great but I want to suggest that this would make an e cell end book club selection. The book lives on many levels, even the weather appears to be a character in the book with its many moods reflecting the internal mood and turmoil of the young pastor. Enjoy "

    " Not much happens in this book. The writing is okay, but nothing from the book stays with you. "

    " What an amazing book. It dealt with a lot of different topics simultaneously- grief, forgiveness, love and marriage, family, etc. Tyler's character was developed magnificantly and he really drew me in. Also a very believable portrait of how humans can be so cruel to one another, yet also so capable of giving second chances. It really made me think and feel. An excellent book. "

    " Like Amy and Isabelle, this story transitions seamlessly through a whole town of characters, many of whom have deeply hidden secrets. The range of characters and the depth of each character is remarkable. Honestly I liked Amy and Isabelle a touch more, but this book is far from unappealing. I plan to continue through her novels. "
