Marilynne Robinson
Housekeeping
1980

With breathtaking assuredness, Marilynne Robinson crafts an elegiac evocation of the West, of the sky, of loneliness and transience. The story, two orphaned girls taken under wing by an enigmatic aunt, will alter the way you think about society's fabric and those who choose to slip from it. I have read few things so beautiful.
