      Barbara Kingsolver's The Bean Trees. She's one of my all time favorite authors and this is one of my favorite books.

    • Rebecca Tijerina

      The Bean Trees is a novel about a girl growing up and struggling to make a life for herself. A classic Barbara Kingsolver novel. Actually after I read this I went looking for ALL her books and read them. What a gifted writer.

      The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver: Quirky Marietta leaves Kentucky after high school for Arizona and a new life -- which she finds in a most unconventional manner. Kingsolver is a great first-person storyteller.

      If you've never read Barbara Kingsolver, start here with The Bean Trees. To describe it would be to spoil it--all you need to know is that a young woman takes off for Arizona in her VW beetle . . . what happens after that is magical. You'll be so moved that you're sure to want to read more Kingsolver! Trust me ;-)

      The Bean Trees is a novel about a girl growing up and struggling to make a life for herself...more than that, it is about family, friendship and hope! A classic Barbara Kingsolver novel.
