IrishEyes Posted February 14, 2005 Report Share Posted February 14, 2005 Barbara Kingsolver, author of the The Poisonwood Bible. I was just talking to Yvonne about this book a few weeks back.This was an awesome one, and I really enjoyed it. Very descriptive, and had lots to think on, especially as a Baptist, and almost missionary. But my favorite part had nothing to do with religion, and everything to do with mothering... I LOVED the description she used when talking about the love you feel for your 'baby'. It hit the nail on the head for me. It's NOT that you love any of your other children less, or anything like that. It just seems, for me, with my baby, I make more TIME to love her, and I KNOW that there will be no more, until I get grandchildren, so it makes the loving time more special, almost bittersweet. But the descriptions she uses just really fit for me. Honestly, although the book is not in my Top 3, the way the author describes emotions is about as real as anything I've read in quite a while. Of course, for fiction, I also like Anita Shreve. I'm reading "The last time they met", for the third time. I LOVE that book. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
