Wendell Berry takes us on a trip down memory lane in his novel Hannah Coulter. Hannah is a retired farm wife who spends her time walking her property, watching the seasons change, and reflecting on her life in the small Kentucky town of Port William. She remembers a tough childhood in the depression that was cushioned by the care of a beloved grandmother, her first husband who died in World War II, and her second husband who she made a life with. She tells the story of a life where they learned to do without but were rich with community. We also see the decline of the farm economy and the migration of young people away from the town that raised them. Hannah Coulter is a heartbreaking yet hopeful story about family, marriage, and rural life.
