Gilead

Marilynne Robinson

As the Reverend John Ames approaches the hour of his own death, he writes a letter to his son chronicling three previous generations of his family, a story that stretches back to the Civil War and reveals uncomfortable family secrets.—Baker & Taylor



"This is probably my favorite Robinson novel, and she returns to the setting and characters in three following novels, but this stands alone as a nice mediation on life and meaning and parenting, in the form of an elderly father writing to his youngest son, an attempt to make sense of the world through grace."—Submitted by Ned B., IT Department Manager
