AN OPRAH'S BOOK CLUB PICK

Lila, homeless and alone after years of roaming the countryside, steps inside a small-town Iowa church - the
only available shelter from the rain - and ignites a romance and a debate that will reshape her life.

'The work of an exceptional novelist' ROWAN WILLIAMS, NEW STATESMAN

'A sumptuous, graceful and ultimately life-affirming novel' JAMES KIDD, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
