Plainsong...a slow starter....fractured linkage between major characters in plot...suddenly woven together after all are introduced with separate heartaches...tough time initially accepting the willingness of two old weatherbeaten bachelor farmers willing to take in a young girl (Victoria); especially under the circumstances...and Maggie maintains a very odd Mother Teresa personality blended with deep personal loneliness..
The simplicity of the language is bitingly real...and the book really grows on one toward the end....some tastes of Nicholas Sparks style...and perhaps some Robert Newton Peck tossed in.. ....eternal values and human experience at its earthy best.. GV
