Synopsis

The Bean Trees , first published in 1988, is the first book written by Barbara Kingsolver and was followed by a sequel, Pigs in Heaven . Taylor Greer hightails it out of Kentucky as soon as she gets a car, refusing to be just another small-town girl.  She soon finds herself in Oklahoma near Cherokee territory, and in a parking lot, a desperate and frightened woman hands Taylor a Cherokee toddler and leaves. Taylor and the child, named Turtle, keep moving out west and try to find somewhere to put down roots and grow. British Fantasy Award (1988)
