Glory in Gilead

By Marilynne Robinson


Glory is the youngest child of Robert Boughton, recently returned home after being abandoned by her fiancé. She's 38. Glory helps run the household with her father as he nears death. She's excited to have her older brother Jack home, and like her father, she loves him dearly despite the hardship and disgrace he's caused them all.

A side note: Marilynne Robinson's second book set in Gilead, Home, takes place concurrently with this one and is told from the perspective of Glory Boughton.
