Description: Housekeeping is the story of Ruth, who grows up with her sister, Lucille, under the care of her competent grandmother, then of two comically fumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, the transient sister of her dead mother. The family house is in a small town on a glacial lake in the Far West -- a town "chastened by an outsized landscape and extravagant weather, and chastened again by an awareness that the whole of human history had occurred elsewhere". Marilynne Robinson's unique gifts as a stylist and a storyteller move Housekeeping beyond the conventions of realism, while rendering in memorable detail the ceremonies through which the life of a household is sustained and the forces of nature by which it is eroded.
