Artisan of the modern folk tale, Barbara Kingsolver tells the provocative and slightly zany story of Taylor Greer and her adopted Cherokee daughter, Turtle, who become instant celebrities following a dramatic rescue of a retarded man. Unfortunately, the fame brings the pair to the attention of a Cherokee attorney who insists that Turtle's Oklahoma state-sanctioned adoption, without tribal consent, is illegal.

"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"
