Synopsis

'I loved Our Souls at Night' David Nicholls

This is a love story.
A story about growing old with grace.

Addie Moore and Louis Waters have been neighbours for years. Now they both live alone, their houses empty of family, their quiet nights solitary. Then one evening Addie pays Louis a visit.

Their brave adventures form the beating heart of Our Souls at Night, Kent Haruf's exquisite final novel.

In the media

Simple, low-key and absolutely beautiful.
The Times
A novel full of kindness, open-heartedness and grace, of ordinary experiences and commonplace regret . . . unputdownable as a thriller - an unlikely page-turner full of quiet surprises . . . It's an astonishing piece of writing
Literary Review
His great subject was the struggle of decency against small-mindedness, and his rare gift was to make sheer decency a moving subject . . . This novel runs on the dogged insistence that simple elements carry depths, and readers will find much to be grateful for.
