I bought this after reading Flight Behaviour and The Poisonwood Bible, both of which I absolutely loved. I now intend to read everything she's written as I simply find her writing style brilliant.
These short stories (so far - I'm only on the third one) focus on the minutiae of ordinary lives and relationships. She has a way of bringing characters to life very quickly, and I find I care about them in a very short space of reading.

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.

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