In his last book Haruf shares a story of two elderly people battling against loneliness in a small town

Addie and Louis, widowed and lonely, seem to have found a solution to their loneliness in a platonic, yet somewhat unconventional relationship. Despite the hushed gossip of their small town, and the resistance of their adult children, their relationship blossoms into one of love and support. In the end, though, societal convention, in the form of Addie's son, brings an end to the relationship. Haruf's book is a poignant and touching look at the difficulties of older adults in the twilight of their lives
