    Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media.

    Story

    Kingsolver at her best. She uses the warmth and depth of her characters to explore some of the difficult issues of our time. I love the way the main character is a woman in very poor, rural Appalachia... you experience the issues of the day from her point of view. It is a book that builds bridges in this divided time.

    Far from the land of her birth, Moirin sets out across Tatar territory to find Bao, the proud and virile Ch'in fighter who holds the missing half of her diadh-anam, the divine soul-spark of her mother's people. After a long ordeal, she not only succeeds but surrenders to a passion the likes of which she's never known. But the lovers' happiness is short-lived, for Bao is entangled in a complication that soon leads to their betrayal.

    Delightful. Makes me want to go back and re-read the Kushiel series. Adventure, romance, a kick-ass female protagonist, and a deep connection to earth spirituality... Who could ask for more?
