Barbara Kingsolver is an excellent storyteller, and this volume of her short stories is wide in scope. She really knows how to depict human nature, and these stories show her memorable characters with wit, humor, and heart.

3 out of 5. Not my favorite Kingsolver book, and I enjoy her novels more than short stories. There were a few stories I really liked and would have enjoyed more had they been full novels.

This is a collection of 12 short stories...taking place from northern California to the hills of eastern Kentucky and the caribbean island of St. Lucia. Stories of hope, momentary joy and powerful indurance.

Barbara Kingsolver is one of the most gifted authors I've ever read. Absolutely love her fiction and non-fiction.

Anyone who has enjoyed Barbara Kingsolver's novels, will love this collection of short stories. I was absolutely crazy about some of them. The only bad part was you wanted them to go on longer than they do!

This is a lovely collection of short stories about life and family. I found myself very absorbed in them and there were only two or three that I didn't enjoy as much as the others (including the title story). Definitely recommended!

I love her work and will read anything that she has written, but I'm afraid that I'm not an appreciator of short stories. My loss.

Oh, my first taste of non-fiction Barbara Kinsolver, and I wasn't crazy about it. Perhaps it is because her fiction is so magical and uplifting, even after your heart gets slammed down. These stories seemed abrupt and often sad. I could see where she borrowed some character's personalities from in the stories told here. I will try her other non-fiction offering because she is an excellent author, but not my favorite book.
