Pigs In Heaven

Barbara Kingsolver is an author who is universally renowned and for me, at least, always associated with The Poisonwood Bible. 

That assumption has since been quashed. 

I beg you to read her books, The Bean Trees and the sequel, Pigs In Heaven.  I'm a mess.  My eyes are puffy, and my head is heavy.  I've read both books within 5 days of each other - which is saying something seeing that my blog posts teeter on the verge of taking forever to materialise - and spent this afternoon surrounded by tissues as I turned the last page. 

Her characters are pure magic and the writing pure genius.  Cut yourself loose and buy them now, you'll kick yourself if you don't.
