I was warned about this book before I read it. Good thing too, because it is the sort that turns your eyes from its pages into a firm, if gentle probing into your own life. Such a simple book, just the life of Kentucky farm wife in the years during and after WWII, told in her own quiet, unflinching voice. But oh, the beauty of it. I have said before that Wendell Berry is a writer who settles you down into his story, and thus, into your own life.
