This was a longer book then it should have been. Cheating and lying lead to more cheating and lying. I didn't enjoy this book. It had its moments, but most of them were more cheating and lying. The ending was sort of happy, but not reasonable. I would not suggest this book to anyone.

Pilgrims - Garrison Keillor
Author: Garrison Keillor
Publisher: New York: Viking
1969, Keillor hosted a morning radio program on Minnesota Public Radio, which was called A Prairie Home Companion. Five years later, he transformed the show into a live broadcast, borrowing the name from his earlier program. And it is still going strong today after a brief hiatus from 1987 to 1989. A popular part of A Prairie Home Companion is Keillor’s weekly monologue set in the quiet, fictional Minnesota town of Lake Wobegon, “where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.” The show also features musical guests, imaginary commercials, and skits.
In addition to his popular program, Keillor is a well-regarded writer. His books include Happy To Be Here (1981), the best-selling Lake Wobegon Days (1985), Leaving Home (1987), We Are Still Married (1989), and WLT: A RadioRomance (1992). Most recently, he had two works of fiction published: Pontoon: a Lake Wobegon Novel (2007) and the children’s book Daddy’s Girl (2007).
