Gilead, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize, brought us John Ames, a preacher in 1960s Kansas. Home returns to the same time and place, but this time from the point of view of the Reverend Robert Boughton, Ames's closest friend, and two of Boughton's children: ne'er-do-well Jack and his younger sister, Glory. After a crime-filled childhood, Jack returns home to take care of his aging father. His return alarms Ames - but Jack's journey is less about wilful destruction than it is about truth seeking.
