I loved this genuine story of evolving lives.
Another delightful book from Wallace Stegner. Even though I have ones I favor more than this one (Angle of Repose, The Big Rock Candy Mountain, All the Little Live Things). Stegner is capturing getting old in a way that I do not believe that anyone else succeeds, with the fear, but also with the intimacy of couples that are married for long long years, with regrets and memories, with friends that are going away (passing away, or losing their health, or just far away). Joe is more funny yet grumpy in All the Little Live Things, but we have the chance to get to know him better reading both books about him and Ruth his wife.
So as usual, it's a Stegner's, which is pretty self-explanatory and promises joy from beautiful prose.
