"Everything he did, he did for Miss Mary" - Amazon reviewer
A snapshot view of an old Alabama farmer, seen through the eyes of a young boy, Billy, whose mother had been employed at the farm to nurse the terminally-ill wife that the gentle farmer had loved his whole life. Well-written, this short novella conjures up the expanse of the farm, the solitude of Boone, despite the numerous farm workers, and above all, Boone's love for his invalid wife Mary. Completely unsentimental, it is still very moving with a totally unexpected ending. A poignant tale, yet one filled with the wonder of a child's recall.
