    One of the most beloved novels in recent years, Plainsong was a best seller from coast to coast, and now Kent Haruf returns to the High Plains community of Holt, Colorado, with a story of even more masterful authority.

    Where does Eventide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I read Plainsong first, and its story about a small town and an earlier (though not necessarily simpler) time drew me in. By the time it was finished I found myself wanting more--right away! Fortunately for me, Eventide picks the story up again. It isn't exactly a sequel, but is set in the same small town with some of the same homespun but highly engaging characters, working with challenges of loneliness and loss. Not exactly haunting in its beauty, but definitely one that will stay with you for a while.

    Story

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    I've enjoyed many audiobooks, but this one was sheer vacation.


    What about Edoardo Ballerini’s performance did you like?

    Wonderful mastery of accents, cadence, tenor of the voices. A virtuoso performance!
