3.5 out of 5 stars...Home was a very well written book, however it is one of those that is slow and plodding...exploring the everyday life of a family. Most (if not all) of the book is set at the home of Reverend Boughton. Boughton lives with his adult daughter Glory, who takes care if him in his old age. Glory's older brother returns home after taking off 20 years prior. Glory and Jack bond over their troubled histories and their common desire to escape hte town of Gilead. I enjoyed HOME more than Robinson's novel Gilead.
