Publisher Description

The 2004 Pulitzer Prize winning novel
A New York Times Top-Ten Book of 2004
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction

Nearly 25 years after Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson returns with an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart. In the words of Kirkus, it is a novel "as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering." GILEAD tells the story of America and will break your heart.

Almost truly great

At first I couldn’t put this book down. About halfway through, it started to get long, but it didn’t disappoint. Several times it started to lose my interest, but then it always brought me back. If a few of the storylines had been shortened a bit, this would be a strong 5-star review.

Amazing!

Deep, spectacular, fulfilling

What an achievement - to take the voice of an aged preacher - to share the message of redemption about his namesake with his young son.
