Prodigal Summer

Our book club is reading this month Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver.  I'm actually listening to it.  Barbara is best known for writing The Poisonwood Bible, a required reading in school now I hear, maybe college.  Anyway, a couple of years ago we read Flight Behavior which I absolutely LOVED.  She has not let me down in this book.  She is the reader on this one herself and I'm thoroughly enjoying this one too.  I'm going to read everything she writes from now on.  This one feels like an old friend and takes me to memories of my mother, my great grandmother and the lives they lived.  The slowed down country life, the hardships, the beauty, the language.  So well worth the read or listen.
