pearl, July 29, 2008

As a woman who feels connected to farming and nature, I found this book to be a beautiful ode to humans' complicated participation in the natural world. Kingsolver's writing is surprisingly beautiful and honest...I found myself laughing out loud, re-reading passages in wonder at the author's skill, and yes, crying. This is the best novel I have ever read. It put into words many things I have been trying to understand.
