Great books, the first one is the most cheerful and the last the most depressing. Can be read separately.

I read the Milagro Beanfield War & saw the movie, too. It is a favorite, & started me picking up books with magical realism in the description, so of course I'd like to read these others!

I've read this trilogy twice. I still think it is Nichols' finest work.
