Marilynne Robinson "Gilead"

This is one of my new favorite books, a very simple, beautiful novel, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2005.. It is written as letters to an old man's son. John Ames is dying. He has lived seventy six years in the small town. He is married quite late in life and has one son, whom he never thought he would have and realizes he will never see him grow up. Ames is a great character, he knew himself, his feelings so very well. Ames lived through some very hard times and a long period of loneliness.
This is a powerful, thought-provoking novel about life, history, love and belief.
