Jack tells the tale of John Ames Boughton, the loved and grieved-over prodigal son of a Presbyterian minister in Gilead, Iowa, a drunkard and a ne’er-do-well.
In segregated St Louis sometime after the Second World War, Jack falls in love with Della Miles, an African-American high-school teacher, also a preacher’s child, with a discriminating mind, a generous spirit and an independent will. This is their fraught, beautiful story.
