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

  • Katherine Koch

    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.
