A Barbara Kingsolver Omnibus: Homeland; The Bean trees; Pigs in Heaven

Author(s): Barbara Kingsolver

Literary Fiction

Contains: THE BEAN TREES - Taylor Greer grows up poor in rural Kentucky with two goals: to avoid pregnancy and to get away. She succeeds on both counts when she buys an old car and heads west. But midway across the country, motherhood catches up with her when she becomes guardian of an abandoned baby girl she calls Turtle. In Tuscon they encounter an extraordinary array of people, and with their help, Taylor builds herself and her child a life. HOMELAND - Over landscapes ranging from northern California to the hills of eastern Kentucky and the Caribbean island of St Lucia, Barbara Kingsolver tells stories of hope, momentary joy and powerful endurance. Homeland offers a world of love and possibility into which the reader is irresistibly drawn. PIGS IN HEAVEN - When six-year-old Turtle Greer witnesses a freak accident, her insistence on what she has seen, and her mother's belief in her, lead to a man's dramatic rescue. But Turtle's moment of celebrity draws her into a conflict of historic proportions. The crisis quickly envelops not only Turtle and her mother, Taylor, but everyone else who touches their lives in a complex web connecting their future with their past . . .
