How wonderful to be invited back to Port William by Wendell Berry. His novel, Hannah Coulter, is like sitting quietly by a heartbreakingly beautiful, slow-moving river, watching the sun rise ... and then set. Not much happens. Then again, everything happens. What a beautiful and reassuring place and story.
