Pam Porter There are people who love this book and think it is her best. I don't agree. Although I enjoyed it, I think she is a little "preachy". I like my authors to be a little more subtle in their reader manipulation.

Laura Porter Agreed - very heavy handed! I also thought the book should have ended half way through as nothing that happened after that was too interesting.

Pam Porter Have you read "The Bean Trees"? It is still my favorite of her books. The characters of Taylor and Turtle are wonderful. If you like it, their story is continued in "Pigs in Heaven".

Laura Porter I've read both, actually. They were amazing books!
