After reading Gilead, I learned that she wrote a sequel, or really a parallel novel, Home. This novel describes the life of another family in Gilead, Iowa: Rev. Robert Boughton and his adult children Glory and Jack.
Like Gilead, this novel is quiet and understated. The main action takes place when Jack returns home after a twenty year absence. Once he arrives, his father and sister start to review events from decades past.
