"Possessed of an extravagantly gifted narrative voice, Kingsolver blends a fierce and abiding moral vision with benevolent concise humor. Her medicine is meant for the head, the heart and the soul.""--New York Times Book Review""A novel full of miracles.""--Newsweek""Full of wit, compassion, and intelligence." "--People""There is no one quite like Barbara Kingsolver in contemporary literature. Her dialogue sparkles with sassy wit and the earthy poetry of ordinary folks' talk; her descriptions have a magical lyricism rooted in daily life but also on familiar terms with the eternal." "--Washington Post Book World""Kingsolver makes you care about her characters to the point of tears; she is bitingly funny--and she writes like a dream.""--San Francisco Chronicle""Breathtaking...unforgettable....This profound, funny, bighearted novel, in which people actually find love and kinship in surprising places, is also heavenly....A rare feat and a triumph.""--Cosmopolitan""That rare combination of a dynamic story told in dramatic language, combined with issues that are serious, debatable and painful...[it's] about the human heart in all its shapes and ramifications.""--Los Angeles Times Book Review""A crackerjack storyteller...Kingsolver has a way with miracles. One is the way she opens her plot to them. The other is the way she makes us believe.""--Newsweek""Immensely readable, warmhearted...brim[ming] with down-home wisdom and endearing characters.""--Boston Globe"
