Wonderfully rounded characters tell a story both frighteningly contemporary and important in its insights: the entire population of the North American monarch butterfly migrates to southern Appalachia rather than Mexico. Kingsolver creates a complex scenario based on scientific and historical fact in which the natural world plays a significant role. A thought-provoking, inspiring, achingly moving novel, embodying Kingsolver's well-loved humanity and empathy. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
