Robinson's prose is elegant and simple. Her characters are the same. John Ames reminded me of a 77-year-old Congregationalist minister version of Atticus Finch. It's set up as a 240-page letter from Ames to his 7-year-old son by a much younger wife who Ames married late in his own existence. If this doesn't sound fantastic, trust me, you don't want to miss the beauty of this book. I can't do it the slightest justice. It's just gripping. And it won a Pulitzer if that does it for you. Opening line: "I told you last night that I might be gone sometime, and you said, Where, and I said, To be with the Good Lord, and you said, Why, and I said Because I'm old, and you said, I don't think you're old."
