Publisher's Summary

Picking up where her modern classic The Bean Trees left off, Barbara Kingsolver's best-selling Pigs in Heaven continues the tale of Turtle and Taylor Greer, a Native American girl and her adoptive mother who have settled in Tucson, Arizona, as they both try to overcome their difficult pasts.

Taking place three years after The Bean Trees, Taylor is now dating a musician named Jax and has officially adopted Turtle. But when a lawyer for the Cherokee Nation begins to investigate the adoption, their new life together begins to crumble.

Depicting the clash between fierce family love and tribal law, poverty and means, abandonment and belonging, Pigs in Heaven is a morally wrenching, gently humorous work of fiction that speaks equally to the head and to the heart.

    Story
    "A story I wish would never end"

    I am a huge fan of Barbara Kingsolver's work. As a social worker and a biologist, I find that her descriptions of the natural world inspire a mindful peace and her treatment of individual characters and the broader human condition both challenging and insightful.
    I rarely write reviews. After finishing this two part series, I find myself feeling connected to these characters and sincerely wishing to know more about their story. Some of the broader themes explored in the series include immigration, racism and white privilege, Native Americans, Foster care and adoption--topics with which we continue to struggle.
    This book is interesting and emotional. I will listen to it again and again.

    Story
    "What happen..."

    I loved Prodigal Summer ... it was a beautiful book beautifully narrated. I am having trouble listening to Pigs in Heaven because of the narrator. The narration is flat and uninteresting.
