Review quote

"As clear as air. It is the southern novel taken west, its colors as translucent and polished as one of those slices of rose agate from a desert shop.""--New York Times Book Review""The Bean Trees is the work of a visionary.... It leaves you open-mouthed and smiling.""--Los Angeles Times""So wry and wise we wish it would never end....The chatty, down-home audacity of Barbara Kingsolver's remarkable first novel hooks us on the first page.""--San Francisco Chronicle""Idealistic and exhilerating, "The Bean Trees" is a book that combines the most careful craft with a moral code that is loving and expansive.""--Philadelphia Inquirer""A major new talent. From the very first page, Kingsolver's characters tug at the heart and soul.""--Ms.""An astonishing literary debut....For a deep breath of fresh air, spend some time in the neighborhood of "The Bean Trees."""--Cosmopolitan""This is the story of a lovable, resourceful 'instant mother, ' one who speaks, acts and learns for herself, becoming an inspiration to us all.""--Glamour""A lively first easy book to enjoy.""--The New Yorker"
