A spare yet eloquent, bittersweet yet inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together to wrestle with the events of their lives and their hopes for the imminent future.
In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf’s inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis’s wife. His daughter lives hours away in Colorado Springs, her son even farther away in Grand Junction, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in houses now empty of family, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with.
Their brave adventures—their pleasures and their difficulties—are hugely involving and truly resonant, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writer’s enduring contribution to American literature.

Our Souls at Night
A very sad yet haunting story. It has a spare beauty that is simply told. I would have liked a bit more detail about the characters but when you know that the author was dying as he wrote this book it makes it ever more poignant.

Very touching story. I didn't want it to end...
What a beautiful story
It's hard to believe that a story about an old woman and an old man could be so sad and romantic and heart-piercing. Brought back memories of when I read The Bridges of Madison County in high school & cried my eyes out! I'll be thinking about Addie and Louis for a long time...
