    When Rhonda was a child - abandoned and ignored by his mother; abused and misguided by his mother's boyfriend - he imagined the rooms of his home drifting apart from one another like separating continents. Years later, after an embarassing episode as an adult, Rhonda's inner-child appears, leading him to a trapdoor in the bottom of a dumpster behind a taqueria that will force him to finally confront his troubled past.

    Catherine says: "Narration at times odd. Otherwise insanely good."
    "Bad"
    Overall

    Really painful book to listen to! We were a group of people in a long car ride together listening to this and it was bad. The voices by the narrator and the metaphors by the author. I will not finish this book. By the end of the ride, we just couldn't listen to it anymore. I usually like dark edgy books or bukowski type stories, but this is really badly written. Maybe other people will find something in this book. We couldn't though.

    Prodigal Summer weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives in southern Appalachia. At the heart of these intertwined narratives is a den of coyotes that have recently migrated into the region. Deanna Wolfe, a reclusive wildlife biologist, watches them from an isolated mountain cabin where she is caught off-guard by Eddie Bondo, a young hunter who comes to invade her most private spaces and her solitary life.

    The narration by Barbara Kingsolver herself is amazing. I also listened to her other book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle". She just has a way of reading that captures your attention and her writing is so sincere. I can't wait to buy another one of her books!
