|Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver|
This book came out around the same time as Kingsolver's highly acclaimed The Poisonwood Bible, and it strikes me as an antidote for the intensity and dark desperation of that amazing book, because there is a real lightness to Prodigal Summer that is both uplifting and very beautiful.
And, before I go any further I must say a great big WELCOME to all the new followers of Library Girl. I am so glad to have you here. I really hope that you will add in your book chat selections this month, I absolutely love hearing what people are reading! And, thanks Stella *waves* for the little plug - you're so lovely!
