Almost finished reading this gem for the second time. I'm in so much love with it. It's raw emotion is so beautifully presented, and the characters develop and intertwine with a primal grace that can only come from Ms. Kingsolver. I appreciate the geography lesson of the Appalachian country in addition to the amazing story. Read this book!

Lovely. Beautifully written and the characters were people I grew to like and care about - loved the subtle and overt connections between the characters and the characters and their environment.

Excellently written, and the perfect book to read during a heat wave. I like how the lives of different women interwine.

I loved this beautiful story, the characters and the imagery. A story for the spring time, about newness and growth of all kinds.

This writing in this book was lovely and it gave a beautiful image of the Appalachians but the truth is that nothing much happened in this novel. The strength of the story came from the development and growth of the characters, and Kingsolver did an excellent job of this, but I kept waiting through the whole book for the story to come together into something bigger or more complex and it never really did. I did enjoy getting to know the characters in the book but I felt let down by the story line

Funny, moving, and masterfully written... as are all the best books. Interspersed through the text are all kinds of ecological facts, clearly showing how all living things are as connected to each other as the characters in the novel, even when they don't know it. Wonderful!
