Absolutely loved this book. Just as Taylor, Estban, and Esperanza did not want to leave each other, I did not want the story to end. Ms. Kingsolver handles some very sensitive and touchy subjects with such grace and ease. These are subjects most people don't even want to talk about in private let alone out in public. It is the simplicity of her conversations, and the humor of old fashion common sense advice that creeps into those conversations, that make it easier to hear.

I don't know how I missed this book for so long. I fear the only problem now is that I will want to read all of her other novels. I had read her family memoir.
