Staff Reviews

A house is falling apart and two families under the same disintegrating roof – one modern-day, the other late 19th century – struggle to navigate the political and social pressures, financial difficulties, and complexities of everyday living; the world they’ve known seems to be crumbling all around them. While the details of their lives are different, they share the core challenge of surviving major cultural change. Made me think of how many of us feel right now with the huge shifts going on in our world. Thought provoking with a rich cast of characters!

November 2018 Indie Next List

“A brilliant novel set in two different centuries, eras when lies trumped truth and superstition overruled science. Kingsolver illustrates human resiliency with insight, humor, and compassion in this deeply satisfying novel. While showing the cost of leadership built on false promises and lies, it also illustrates the strength of the human spirit with characters who will not be broken by their times. Kingsolver’scharacters, including historical figures Mary Treat and Charles Landis, shine as they make their way through the maze of survival set before them. Great reading.”
