I've only read a couple of Barbara's books - and I need to read more. Down-to-earth stories about average folks going through average challenges. Yet the story is a page-turner. I felt like I knew the characters intimately and was rooting for good things to happen to them. Reading Kingsolver is kind of like rafting down a river. The story unfolds slowly, but there's always something interesting around the next corner.
