Taylor Greer fears spending her life in the small Kentucky town where she grew up. She saves her money, buys an old VW van, and drives west. She is free and unencumbered until a stranger leaves a young girl in her care. Kingsolver's debut is even more impressive for being written in on a typewriter in a closet during the middle of the night. ~ Reviewed by Laurel Rhame
