I told you last night that I might be gone sometime, and you said, Where, and I said, To be with the Good Lord, and you said, Why, and I said, Because I'm old, and you said, I don't think you're old.
Recommend: Yes. This is book that satisfies your soul. It is a story with very little plot and not much really happens but it leaves you with a sense of fulfillment, a sense of contentment. Reading the book reminded me of sitting at the lake with feet dangling into the water and simply being.
