    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
    A PBS Great American Read selection

    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.
