Synopsis

Set in Appalachia, Kingsolver's very pastoral novel tells the stories of three women who live close to the land. A wildlife biologist studying coyotes is fascinated by a young man with a passion for hunting. An intellectually inclined farmer's wife finds she must stand up for what she believes in. And two elderly country people battle about everything from religion to pesticides, and make startling changes in their lives.
