Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf

Kent Haruf’s posthumous novel is short,sweet and sad.  With the same direct unpretentious language he used in his other works, Haruf tells the story of Addie and Louis, a widow and a widower in a small Colorado town.  Addie asks Louis to begin spending the night with her because that’s when she is loneliest, and Louis agrees to.  Their relationship turns into something, deep, meaningful, honest and necessary for both of them.  A beautiful heart-felt read.
