Do you still have friends that have been friends since childhood? Shotgun Lovesongs is about four friends who grew up together in a small Wisconsin town. Henry stayed to work on his family’s farm, Kip became a commodities trader, Lee traveled the world as a musician, and Ronny was a champion bull rider. No matter how far they strayed, they can’t stay away from home or each other. As they get older, they’re learning how to navigate adult friendship.
I couldn’t put this book down. It reminded me of the friendships I’ve had, and the struggles that friends sometimes go through. Butler brings each of his characters to life. I will be thinking about them for a long time to come.
