The Pastures of Heaven by John Steinbeck

A wonderfully written compilation of stories depicting families and their often tragic circumstances. The development of the characters that compose a slice of Northern California known as Las Pasturas Del Cielo (Pastures of Heaven) again showcases Steinbeck's immense talent. A great read and once you start, you feel obligated to simply sit down and finish it in one is that good! This book again demonstrates to me why I have become such a big fan of John Steinbeck's writing.
