Clear-eyed and spirited, Taylor Greer grew up poor in rural Kentucky with the goals of avoiding pregnancy and getting away. But when she heads west with high hopes and a barely functional car, she meets the human condition head-on.

By the time Taylor arrives in Tucson, Arizona, she has acquired a completely unexpected child, a three-year-old American Indian girl named Turtle, and must somehow come to terms with both motherhood and the necessity for putting down roots. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places.

Kingsolver's Best Work August 6, 2011
All of Kingsolver's books are great, but Bean Trees is really her best work. It's touching and very true to life. It's a great textbook for anyone, and Taylor Greer (the main character) is a wonderful character, I never wanted to put the book down! I you loved this book, then make sure to read the sequel, Pigs in Heaven, also a great book!
