“The Bean Trees is the work of a visionary. . . . It leaves you open-mouthed and smiling.”  — Los Angeles Times

A bestseller that has come to be regarded as an American classic, The Bean Trees is the novel that launched Barbara Kingsolver’s remarkable literary career.

It is the charming, engrossing tale of rural Kentucky native Taylor Greer, who only wants to get away from her roots and avoid getting pregnant. She succeeds, but inherits a three-year-old Native American girl named Turtle along the way, and together, from Oklahoma to Arizona, half-Cherokee Taylor and her charge search for a new life in the West. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in seemingly empty places.

So sweet and humorous, rich metaphors. The only thing I didn't love was the way the narrator made Turtle's voice.

I first learned of Barbara Kingsolver in a writing class of mine reading her novel, The Poisonwood Bible. She is an amazing writer with such command of the English language, her narration, and her layered stories. She is astounding. I definitely recommend to get to know her work. You won't regret it. Simply an amazing book, and an amazing writer.
