Marilynne Robinson and the "trilogy"
These are not popular fiction books, though. Her style is such (and I admire this because I reveal things too quickly in my writing, I fear) that you know what you need to know to understand the minds of the characters at that point.
The copy I bought from Amazon was used, and the previous reader had put in the front this note: "She is kind of wordy but a pretty good writer." Generous considering she had won a Pulitzer.
