Master Butchers Singing Club by Louise Erdrich
This was our book club selection for this month. I really like Louise Erdrich's work, so I was happy to read this book. David and I started listening to the audio in the car and it was REALLY slow. I read the first half of the book and did not think much of it. About half way through, the book picked up and I ended up liking it a lot. I think it is about contentment. The main character is a woman whose overcomes an alcoholic father, a homosexual man who poses as her husband and then the master butcher, whose sons she helps to raise after the death of his wife.
