I finished The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver last night. After reading two of her novels, I’m definitely interested in reading more by this author. She brings up social or political issues and the reader learns about them through the eyes of someone innocently uninformed. I really felt a connection with her characters even though we had little in common.
I started The Color Purple by Alice Walker this morning, a movie I have seen a million times but a book I have surprisingly never read.
