Pigs In Heaven

Barbara Kingsolver  (1993)

I was happy to be reunited with Taylor and her adopted daughter Turtle in this sequel to The Bean Trees, which appeared on my Best Books list last year. While on vacation, Turtle witnesses a man fall from the Hoover Dam. When he is rescued, she becomes a national celebrity, complete with a guest appearance on Oprah. Fame brings her to the attention of a young Native American lawyer, who begins a custody battle to return Turtle to her tribe. The story, told with humor, takes many a turn and really pulls at the heart-strings.
