Gilead, her “serenely beautiful” (Washington Post) tale of three generations of an ordinary but unforgettable family, won a Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. In Home, she revisited the town of Gilead, Iowa in a reimagined prodigal son parable of children returning home to care for their dying father.
