"Gilead" won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. "Home" was a Finalist for the National Book Award and "Lila" was also a National Book Award Finalist in 2014. All by the highly acclaimed author which revolve around the town of Gilead. We are inspired by the luminous, tender voice of John Ames in "Gilead;" Glory Broughton in "Home;" and Lila in "Lila." In "Jack" she tells the story of John Ames Broughton, the prodigal son of Gilead's Presbyterian minister, and his romance with Della Miles, a high school teacher who is also the child of a minister. Their deeply felt, tormented, star-crossed interracial romance resonates with all the paradoxes of American life, then and now. All are in "Fine/Fine" condition.
