Couldn't put it down.,
This review is from: Plainsong (Paperback)
I started reading this yesterday morning and finished it this morning. It is a 'must' read and throughly enjoyable.
Although it doesn't have a vast story, it deals mainly with two sets of brothers x 1 pair elderly, the others young.
A man whose wife is sick, through some sort of depression, with two sons she clearly loves but cannot live with. Her husband the schoolteacher who has problems of his own in the classroom as well as at home.
Two elderly men who take in a girl because she needs a home and grow to accept her and her situation and the girl herself who realises life's mistakes go hand in hand with kindness.
I loved the banter between the two older brothers and was sorry that the book ended. It really was a totally different read for me and I must say I loved it.
