A moving book about love, dreams, secrecy, discouragement, disappointment, suffering, death, & forgiveness. Strout's writes of a minister's life in rural New England & enfolds each of the characteristics listed of the people in the book. Strout's writes of small-town life: the arrival of newcomers, the minister & his wife & the gossip they endure. Tyler Caskey, the minister, questions his calling of the ministry after the death of his wife. He asks himself, "Is it that his faith has left him, or is that he has left his faith?" Facing the grief, along with his pastoral duties, challenges his very being. Strout writes not only about Caskey's challenges as a minister, but about other characters in every-day-life. The book is a great read. I will read another of Elizabeth Strout's books.
