Home by Marilynne Robinson []



The third in her trilogy about Gilead, Robinson tells the story of a family and its community from yet another viewpoint, that of Glory Boughton the unmarrried daughter come home to care for her ailing father. The character development in an old refrain of loved ones in pain is exquisite. John, her brother the outsider, comes vividly off the pages in his tender love and despair.
