    Deftly plotted, defiantly honest, Where You Once Belonged sings the song of a wounded prairie community in a narrative with the earmarks of a modern American classic. In prose as lean and supple as a spring switch, Haruf describes a high school football star who wins the heart of the loveliest girl in the county and the admiration of men twice his age. Fun-loving, independent, Burdette engages in the occasional prank. But when he turns into a man, his high jinks turn into crimes.

    Colorado, January 1977. Eighty-year-old Edith Goodnough lies in a hospital bed, IV taped to the back of her hand, police officer at her door. She is charged with murder. The clues: a sack of chicken feed slit with a knife, a milky-eyed dog tied outdoors one cold afternoon. The motives: the brutal business of farming and a family code of ethics as unforgiving as the winter prairie itself.

    Nella cittadina di Holt, Colorado, Addie Moore si presenta un giorno alla porta del suo vicino di casa, Louis Waters.

Inizia così la storia di un'amicizia, di un amore, fatta di racconti sussurrati e di piccole premure. Ma questa ritrovata dolcezza dovrà scontrarsi con la comunità di Holt, che non accetta ciò che non riesce a capire.
