I savored the luxury of sitting on the front porch this afternoon to finish reading a book. I almost finished it last night, but saved the last few chapters for today. Just because. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to the characters last night. A sure sign of a good read.
This is the story of a man (Nathan) who finds a baby in the woods while he is out duck hunting. He decides he wants to raise the baby, but can't because the baby is given to his grandmother. Nathan tells her that he would like to meet the boy someday, and she promises him she will make that happen. And she does, and the story unfolds.
I read this book very quickly. It is arranged in short chapters, is focused on the relationship between Nathan and the boy, and does not include a lot of excess details that detract from that story. Perfect for bedtime (or front porch) reading. Highly recommended.
