Reprint. Originally published: New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1999; London: Picador, 2000.

Set in Kent Haruf's fictional landscape of Holt County, Colorado, Plainsong is a story of simple lives told with extraordinary empathy.

Tom Guthrie is struggling to bring up his two young sons alone.

In the same town, school girl Victoria Roubideaux finds herself pregnant and homeless.

Whilst Tom's sons find their way forward without their mother, quiet and gentle Harold and Raymond McPheron agree to take Victoria in, unaware that their lives are about to change forever. A novel of haunting beauty from one of America's greatest writers of our time, Plainsong explores the grace and hope of every human life and mankind's infinite capacity for love.
