"Ignorant boys, killing each other," is just about all Nathan Coulter would tell his wife, friends, and family about the Battle of Okinawa in the spring of 1945. Life carried on for the community of Port William, Kentucky, as some boys returned from the war and the lives of others were mourned. In her seventies, Nathan's wife, Hannah, has time now to tell of the years since the war. In Wendell Berry's unforgettable prose, we learn of the Coulter's children, of the Feltners and Branches, and how survivors "live right on."

Hannah slowly seeped into my heart - seemingly simple; enormously moving. a time, a pace that won't return.

Quiet, deep, and lyrical, this book is worth reading and rereading. Author Wendell Berry has captured the atmosphere and rhythms of farming life from the perspective of Hannah Coulter, a woman whose life has been shaped by the Great Depression, World War II, and the national decline of the small family farm. Over the course of this short novel, Hannah perceptively and compassionately reflects on her long life and the people she has known, encompassing personal tragedies and joy in graceful, poetic prose.
