This book is why I love book club - I never would have picked this on my own, and I would have missed out on an absolute gem.

This is something of a "book about nothing." It is simply a love letter about friendship in all of its glory and its grief.

Stegner has a true gift for storytelling and character development. He can turn a phrase with the subtlety of a master and he is able to turn the mundane of life into something quietly profound.

This is a painfully beautiful story about a once-in-a-lifetime friendship between two couples that started during The Great Depression. It is both a book to treasure and a book to share. I'm so glad that I didn't miss out on this wonderful reading experience.
