A most amazing book! Loved it from beginning to end.

Elizabeth Strout is an author that has written only three books and I can't wait until she writes her fourth. "Abide with Me" is full of characters that exhibit human qualities that are both good and bad. I loved every page and was sad to see it end.

First Read For This Author

I kept reading this book expecting everything to come together in a neat little bow in the end. I thought the entire book was disjointed and the ending was such a let down. Too much was left hanging.

    Not sure what to say about this one

    I liked this book, though I found myself feeling frustrated with Tyler throughout the entire thing. I kept thinking that I should have been feeling more sympathetic towards him than I actually did. I suppose it was difficult to accept how disconnected he seemed from his daughter, especially since she needed him so much.

    I think the most distracting thing, though, was the way his wife's character seemed to change as the novel progressed, and not in a good way. She first came across as strong-willed and interesting. Later, she seemed to be nothing more than a shallow spendthrift and petty thief. It was odd.

    Still worth reading, though.

    Pregnant and reading

    i liked this book .... it did start out slow but then it gets to the point where you want to know more about Tylers wife and how sweet it is that he protects his daughter from being an outcast. It was hard to put down after about the third chapter.I also liked how Tyler may have been a minister but after the death of his wife he finds himself back trying to find the god he onced believed in
