I first read this story at least a decade ago and loved it. It may be time to read it again. The follow-on book. Pigs In Heaven, is just as great. After reading The Poisonwood Bible I read everything Barbara Kingsolver had written up to that point and have continued to read her new books as they come out. My favorites are Prodigal Summer and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. The latter book is a memoir. It focuses on the year her family (husband and 2 daughters) spent farming and supporting their household through farming and trading with others in Appalachia. It was fascinating. The audio version is very special because it is read by the authors (Kingsolver, her husband, and their eldest daughter wrote different chapters).
Obviously, I'm a huge fan.
"Nothing links person to person like the frequent passage from hand to hand of a good book."
A wandering book -- the karma of literature!
