Book Title: Home

Author: Marilynne Robinson

Book Description:

Home, a place that exists in time and memory, stirs within us feelings of comfort, joy, and sadness. It is where we begin to establish our unique role in society. Gently and with great care this novel reveals the complex relationships between a father and two of his eight adult children who return home, one to care for him and the other to seek refuge and redemption. Each of Marilynne Robinson's novels was a gift to me from my husband. Her graceful poetic prose inspires me.
