really liked it

Read from February 02 to 14, 2012

I loved this book and the different voices of the women in this missionary family whose lives are variously transformed by their time in the Belgian Congo. Tragic naivete is replaced by different types and levels of insight in the 5 women. Kingsolver clearly loves the country and its people.

Jenn Farris That's so weird! I had a dream the other night (don't remember what the dream was about, and it's really irrelevant anyway) and my thought upon waking was "Check out Kingsolver at the library." I think we're on the same psychic wavelength. Also saw that you had added ELEGANCE OF THE HEDGEHOG. Have you read it yet? No lie, one of the best books I've ever read - life altering.
