Real, loving people in normal lives.,

This review is from: Animal Dreams (Paperback)
Barbara Kingsolver's characters are so real, after you've read one of her books, months later you may be confused as to whether the person you remember is someone you met, or someone you read about. In this instance, Cody, the main character, has real life problems and baggage from the past that she must deal with before she can let herself live in the present. Her relationship with her sister is the kind of relationship we all wish we had, and the Pueblo man that comes back into her life is the kind of man we all wish we could meet. Uplifting and evocative, and with a very respectful and insightful treatment of other cultures. Her relationship with her father is one that we may all recognize, and I think it help me put my relationship with my father in perspective. Thanks for another emotion-gripping read, Barbara.
