Book Type: Hardcover
kcrouth avatar reviewed on

Two interesting stories, set in the same space but 150 years apart in time. We are able to see how much things have changed, and the same time seeing how many things have not changed a bit. Many of the characters are straight out of history, tied together with some glue of Ms. Kingsolver's clever and brilliant imagination. Many issues are touched upon, between contrasting philosophies and generations. Through the interaction of people, events and circumstances, we see bridges built and homes deconstructed to reveal truth in a clearer light. Nice story(ies) :)
