  • Marilynne Robinsons long-awaited second novel is named after the town in which it is set: Gilead, Iowa. The time is the 1950s, and John Ames, the towns beloved pastor, is dying of heart disease. Widowed early but recently remarried, John has a very young son. The novel is a final act of love: a letter to the boy, in which he looks back on his own long life, and on the history of his family and its role in America from the Civil War to the present day.

    Kirkus Review
    A novel as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering. This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

    Publishers Weekly
    Many writers try to capture lifes universals... but Robinson truly succeeds in what is destined to become her second classic.
