really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, short-stories

A very interesting collection of short stories that introduce the reader to women in a variety of situations and at various stages of life. Kingsolver has a fine ear for dialog and seems able to dive straight to the heart of all manner of issues that confront our understanding of what it means to be a woman. Each of these women proves heroic in some small way and her remarkable ability to draw us into the story is on brilliant display. This reader came to care about each of these women in some fundamental way. That is the power of her art.

Lori I really enjoy this author but haven't read this one yet. Having your recommendation assures that I'll go ahead and give this one a try.
