by Marilynne Robinson
 Set in the same time and place of Robinson’s 2005 Pulitzer Prize-winner Gilead, this companion piece examines the parallel story of the dying Reverend Boughton, his dutiful daughter Glory, and prodigal son Jack.
It is a beautiful novel, an elegant variation on the parable of the prodigal son’s return.  In giving an ancient drama of grace and perdition such a strong domestic setup, Robinson stakes a fierce claim to a divine recognition behind the rituals of home.
