One of my favorite writers. Great story of a woman who adopts (by accident) a Native American child and then has to fight to keep her. Endearing, interesting, well written -- food for thought.
Seashore reading. Good sequel to the Bean Tree. Lends to a good discussion of what is the best environment for a minority adopted child.
Wonderful, wonderful book. A sequel (or continuation) of "The Bean Trees", this one tells the story of Taylor and her adopted daughter, Turtle, when a fluke causes Turtle to be recognized as a Native American and Taylor's adoption of her is ruled illegal. This is a lovely, lyrical book, full of truth and tears and laughter. Highly recommended.
Adopted American Indian girl may be forced to go back and live with her natural grandfather and his tribe after she is seen on "The Oprah Winfrey Show". She happens to be on the show because she saved a man from falling into the Hoover Dam. Very good book
this is a sequel to Bean trees. you really should read that one first. i really like this author. it seems like a little story but it has so much going on underneath it all.
