If a book is worth buying it's worth re-reading. So I am almost ashamed to say that I have read almost all Homeland's stories one after the other. All of them are perfect. But I cannot properly review this book until I have read each one in isolation and given each proper thought. For the moment that is a reading pleasure to look forward to - with a further proper review likely!

Beautifully written. You realy feel like you know these people. The short story format makes it easy for lunchtime reading. She literally paints pictures with her writing.

Once again Barbara Kingslover has produced great stories at times heartbreaking but combined with humour. I don't ususally enjoy short stories but this book is not to be missed.

Like all of Barbara Kingsolver's books. Very good understanding of ordinary but interesting people and their lives. Later books her best.
