Abide with Me: A Novel by Elizabeth Strout, a review from The Atlantic Monthly by Joseph O'Neill.

"The seven years that have passed since the publication of Elizabeth Strout's first novel, Amy and Isabelle, have served only to increase her reputation and her readership — and this lovely second novel confirms Strout as the possessor of an irresistibly companionable, peculiarly American voice: folksy, poetic, but always as precise as a shadow on a brilliant winter day." Read the entire Atlantic Monthly review.
