Barbara Kingsolver tackles global warming with a heartfelt tale of one Appalachian family. Even though we know Kingsolver has a point to make she wraps it around a very compelling well told tale. She brings together a rural fundamentalist family, all with different ideas about what is right, and a team of scientists who descend on the area to study the bizarre behavior of Monarch butterflies. What I appreciate in Kingsolver’s writing is her ability to get into the hearts and minds of her characters which transcend to all of us her readers.
