“The Bean Trees”

Author: Barbara Kingsolver

This was first Kingsolver novel and it will not be my last. Her writing is true to form and her characters are realistic. There is a touch of mythical quest to this story, but it is fiction. It’s just enough to be entertaining as the book deals with some heavy issues like immigration, child abuse, and search for identity.

There are some great elements of literature but I don’t think you’d have to be an English major to like this book.
