Hundreds of thousands of readers were enthralled by the luminous, tender voice of John Ames in Gilead, Marilynne Robinson's Pultizer Prize-winning novel. HOME is an entirely independent, deeply affecting work that takes place concurrently in the same Iowa town, this time in the household of Reverend Robert Boughton, Ames's closest friend. Glory Boughton, age 38, has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father. Soon her brother Jack - the prodigal son of the family, gone twenty years - comes home, too, looking for refuge and trying to make peace with a past strewn with trouble and pain. A moving and healing book about families, family secrets, the passing of generations, and love and death and faith.
