Marilynne Robinson's debut novel, which the NYT called one of the best novels of the past 3 decades. I prefer her second, the Pulitzer prize winning "Gilead." This reminded me a bit of Willa Cather's books, especially "O Pioneers" and "My Antonia."

Simply put: Marilynne Robinson is a genius, and I would do just about anything to be able to put a sentence together the way she does.
