Just Finished Flight Behavior
I just have a minute now so my full review will come after I ponder a bit on this extraordinary novel. Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver is about a young woman, a wife and mother, living on a rural Tennessee farm that is visited by a community of Monarch butterflies. It is full of ordinary things that become magic through the way Kingsolver tells the tale. In the interest of full disclosure, I have been a big fan of hers since Bean Trees and I have a signed poster promoting Animal Dreams hanging on my dining room wall. She is on my list of five favorite authors.
