Description

Picking up where her modern classic The Bean Trees left off, Barbara KingsolverA??s bestselling Pigs in Heaven continues the tale of Turtle and Taylor Greer, a Native American girl and her adoptive mother who have settled in Tucson, Arizona, as they both try to overcome their difficult pasts. Taking place three years after The Bean Trees, Taylor is now dating a musician named Jax and has officially adopted Turtle. But when a lawyer for the Cherokee Nation begins to investigate the adoptionA??their new life together begins to crumble. Depicting the clash between fierce family love and tribal law, poverty and means, abandonment and belonging, Pigs in Heaven is a morally wrenching, gently humorous work of fiction that speaks equally to the head and the heart.

Professional reviews

"This sequel to the critically acclaimed The Bean Trees continues the stories of Taylor and her adopted, Native American daughter, Turtle. It also introduces a new player, Annawake Fourkiller, a Cherokee attorney bent on getting Turtle back to the Nation so she may have a traditional upbringing. The narrator uses different voices for the numerous characters, doing a wonderful job with all but Turtle, who luckily doesn't speak much. The story moves well, and the production is of the highest caliber although it's a little slow in delivery. The story may bring tears to your eyes, so be prepared to drive more slowly near the end of the novel. E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
