Truck: a Love Story by Michael Perry

This was our first book for book group this year. It kicked off our theme of Nonfiction titles.

I really enjoyed it. It reads like a novel and has great descriptions.

It tells the story of the year Michael Perry spent restoring an old truck and also how he fell in love.
