This review is from: The Tie that Binds (Paperback)
Kent Haruf is one of my favourite authors. His books are short (like life) and very emotional (again, like life). You will cry and you will laugh, you will yearn and you will empathise with his characters and the way he seems to know human nature so well. He is observant to the smallest detail and seems to understand completely the bleakness of life in rural America.
The Tie that Binds is a tale about 80 year old Edith Goodnough, who is under police guard in hospital, charged with murdering her brother. I don't think you will be able to put it down once you have read the first page and if you are like millions of others, you will go on to read all Haruf's books.
