Abide With Me:From thePulitzer Prize-winning authorof Olive Kitteridge

From the bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Olive Kitteridge,this is a startlingly beautiful novel about love and abandonment, faith and hypocrisy – and the peril of family secrets.

‘Deeply moving... In one beautiful page after another, Strout captures the mysterious combinations of hope and sorrow.’ The Washington Post

Katherine is only five years old. Struck dumb with grief at her mother's death, it is down to her father, the heartbroken minister Tyler Caskey, to bring his daughter out of silence. But Tyler is barely surviving himself. Since Lauren's death he struggles to find the right words for his sermons – how can he be a leader to his congregation when he himself is lost?

When Katherine's teacher calls to discuss his daughter's anti-social behaviour, it sparks a chain of events that begins to tear down Tyler's defences. The small-town rumour-mill has much to make of Katherine's odd behaviour, and even more to say about Tyler's relationship with his housekeeper. In Tyler's darkest hour, a startling discovery will test his congregation's humanity - and his own will to endure the kinds of trials that sooner or later test us all.

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
