Glory Boughton, aged thirty-eight, has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father. Soon her brother, Jack, the prodigal son of the family, gone for twenty years, comes home too, looking for refuge and to try to make peace with a past littered with tormenting trouble and pain. Jack is a bad boy from childhood, an alcoholic who cannot hold a job, perpetually at odds with his surroundings and with his traditionalist father. Yet he remains Reverend Boughton's most beloved child. Brilliant, beguiling, lovable, and wayward, Jack forges an intense bond with Glory and engages painfully with John Ames, his godfather and namesake.

Most boring book I have ever read. The father, who by the way, did not die in the book, was ailing and needed constant care. Glory and Jack made me weary with their sad lives. The whole book was a downer. The reason I read it? It was the only book in the house and I was trapped inside during an ice and snow storm.
