Clear-eyed and spirited, Taylor Greer grew up poor in rural Kentucky with the goals of avoiding pregnancy and getting away. But when she heads west with high hopes and a barely functional car, she meets the human condition head-on. By the time Taylor arrives in Tucson, Arizona, she has acquired a completely unexpected child, a three-year-old American Indian girl named Turtle, and must somehow come to terms with both motherhood and the necessity of putting down roots. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places.

I'm sure this is an excellent book and I still hope to read it one day, but I have to clear out some room on my bookshelves so this copy is going to have to go out into the world.

Barbara Kingsolver has become one of my favorite authors. I enjoy her books so much that I would like to keep them in my permanent collection. I'll keep an eye out for another copy as this one is a bookcrossing book which I prefer to set free in the future. :-)

I read "Pigs in heaven" last year. At that time I was not aware that it was the sequel of "The bean trees"... so I've read them in the wrong order but it doesn't really matter. Both books are exellent!
