Gilead Oprah s Book Club Book Description:

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER• OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION • NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD WINNER• A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK • MORE THAN 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD “Quietly powerful [and] moving.” O, The Oprah Magazine (recommended reading) Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award, GILEAD is a hymn of praise and lamentation to the God-haunted existence that Reverend Ames loves passionately, and from which he will soon part. In 1956, toward the end of Reverend John Ames's life, he begins a letter to his young son, an account of himself and his forebears. Ames is the son of an Iowan preacher and the grandson of a minister who, as a young man in Maine, saw a vision of Christ bound in chains and came west to Kansas to fight for abolition: He "preached men into the Civil War," then, at age fifty, became a chaplain in the Union Army, losing his right eye in battle. Reverend Ames writes to his son about the tension between his father--an ardent pacifist--and his grandfather, whose pistol and bloody shirts, concealed in an army blanket, may be relics from the fight between the abolitionists and those settlers who wanted to vote Kansas into the union as a slave state. And he tells a story of the sacred bonds between fathers and sons, which are tested in his tender and strained relationship with his namesake, John Ames Boughton, his best friend's wayward son. This is also the tale of another remarkable vision--not a corporeal vision of God but the vision of life as a wondrously strange creation. It tells how wisdom was forged in Ames's soul during his solitary life, and how history lives through generations, pervasively present even when betrayed and forgotten.

Going for Balm in Gilead Book Description:

Going for Balm in Gilead By: Masz M. Yebbus Samuel was born in an African village, where the ancestors used to depend on natural indicators to predict the start of seasonal rains. Lately, the indicators had become unreliable, and when the community failed to predict the onset of rains, crops failed, and the threat of famine loomed large on the horizon. Samuel was blamed because he had passed on information about the rains, which turned out to be wrong. Assisted by an enigmatic village pastor, Samuel escaped to the city before society could exact its retribution. Enticed by the prospects of better income abroad, Samuel crossed the Mediterranean Sea illegally, to settle in Gilead in Europe. Unfortunately, life in Gilead did not turn out as he had envisaged. This book chronicles Samuel’s struggle to achieve success. It tells the story of how he had to straddle two parallel worlds of existence, and the ultimate discovery that because he had become exotic in both worlds, ‘home’ was nowhere. This is Samuel’s story of how he ultimately discovers that the secret of success lay in self-reconciliation, and that at the heart of this, was the definition of ‘home.’
