33. House-Keeping (219 pp.) by Marilynne Robinson (Oct. 26). Wow. I think Mom brought me this on her last visit. I've heard it was good and I could hardly put it down. I think I'm going to have to read it again.
The absolute black of the sky dulled and dimmed and blanced slowly away, and finally half a dozen daubs of cloud, dull powder pink, sailed high in a pale-green sky, rust-red at the horizon.
It's about a girl and her sister who are raised by a series of relatives after they lose their Mom. It doesn't all go well. Highly recommended.
