Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

I have been a fan of Barbara Kingsolver ever since I read the Poisonwood Bible. After I finished reading that book (one of my favorites) I went in search of her other works. I was surprised to find a wide array of books that were very different from each other. I often read multiple works by one author. She is the first one who seems to take on a distinctly different voice for each book.

This sort of reminds me of myself. I have such diverse interests that continually evolve. If I wrote a book today and one five years from now, I am not sure they would recognize each other.

That is why I am so excited to read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.

Maybe I will get motivated to plant even more in my garden...
