Plainsong

“Often in the morning they rode out along the tracks on Easter and took their lunch and once rode as far as the little cemetery halfway to Norka where there was a stand of cottonwood trees with their leaves washing and turning in the wind, and they ate lunch there in the freckled shade of the trees and came back in the late afternoon with the sun sliding down behind them, making a single shadow of them and the horse together, the shadow out in front like a thin dark antic precursor of what they were about to become.”

Plainsong (paperback by Picador Books) by Kent Haruf is the first novel -in a series of three- that takes place in Holt, a fictional town in Colorado, and follows the lives of several residents whose stories intertwine.
