Author Kent Haruf died last November. His final novel Our Souls at Night (Knopf) finds him reflecting on old age. Louis, a long-time widower, gets a knock on his door one night. It’s a widow who was once friends with his late wife. And she has a proposal for him. In her review, Betsy Burton says, “If Kent Haruf’s previous novel gave benediction to our final act, death, Our Souls at Night provides a tender and haunting grace note.”
