Animal Dreams centers on the Noline family, father and two daughters, but especially is the story of daughter Cody Noline. Cody returns to her hometown after growing up and finally escaping only to find out the hard way that there is no escape from life. She longs to find the meaning and purpose in her life as her sister seems to have found, but she's repressing all her memories and waiting for someone else to figure it out and tell her about it.

Cody comes to terms with her life with a little help from hometown outsiders and this book's resolution is a bit more upbeat and positive than Poisonwood Bible, although Kingsolver's style is very similar in both books so if you enjoy reading her narrative, Animal Dreams will not disappoint.
