I decided to read this one for the 4th of July extra space! It fits Main Street #10, which means that I'll be rolling off that one on July 5th. I hope this is good - I haven't read Richard Russo before, so I have no preconceived thoughts about his writing.
This book is set in the titular Empire Falls, a small town in Dexter County, Maine. From looking at GR, I can see that Char really liked it, so that is a strong endorsement!
