Description
(One of the New York Times Book Review's 100 Notable Books of 2012 and a Washington Post Book of the Year) From its opening, when a young Appalachian woman's narrow experience of life is thrown wide with the force of a raging fire, this novel from the Orange Prize–winning author of The Lacuna and The Poisonwood Bible is transfixing. Dellarobia Turnbow gave up her dream of seeing the world when she became pregnant at 17; after more than a decade tending children on a failing farm, she seeks some escape through a tryst with a younger man. But on her way to meet him she encounters a shocking vision—a forest valley filled with what looks like a lake of silent red fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but the discovery sparks a raft of other, widely varied explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media, all of whom descend on the isolated community. As they all line up to judge the woman and her miracle, Dellarobia finds her once-limited future suddenly opening out, and into confrontations with her family, her church, her town, her continent, and finally the world at large. Over the course of a single winter, her life will become the property of the planet and, for the first time, truly her own. In the lyrical language of her native Appalachia, Barbara Kingsolver bares the rich, tarnished humanity of her novel's inhabitants and unearths the modern complexities of rural existence. This fine trade paperback edition features a foil-stamped cover and untrimmed pages, as well as a reader's guide and interview with the author.
