LoveReading View on The Bean Trees

One of Kerry Reich's favourite books.

A book about love and friendship. Kingsolver always creates believable and interesting characters who enthral the reader and this story is no different. Taylor does not want to get pregnant young and live in the small town she is from but fate deals her a blow on her travels by suddenly making her the guardian of an abandoned baby girl. A lovely story with interesting characters who show the true meaning of friendship to each other.

The Bean Trees Synopsis

Plucky Taylor Greer grows up poor in rural Kentucky with two goals: to avoid pregnancy and to get away. She succeeds on both counts when she buys an old car and heads west. But midway across the country motherhood catches up with her when she becomes the guardian of an abandoned baby girl she calls Turtle. In Tuscon they encounter an extraordinary array of people, and with their help, Taylor builds herself and her sweet, stunned child a life.
