One of my first favorite adult authors was Barbara Kingsolver. After I read her book The Bean Trees, I was hooked. Of course this means I read every book she wrote until Prodigal Summer. I liked that one, but I think she had an agenda which got a little preachy at times. Parts of it reminded me of how I felt during the last 100 pages of Atlas Shrugged when I was shouting at the book that “I get it already!” But I hear the books are good and I mean to read them.
By far my favorite is a book of essays, don’t ask me why, I am NOT usually a short story or essay reader, but I LOVED High Tide in Tuscon. They are lovely, her writing is beautiful, thoughtful and they make me happy. Worth a read! 🙂
On an unrelated note, my “k” key on my keyboard at work isn’t working well. I keep omitting the k!
