This is undoubtedly one of my absolute favorite books; one that I will be recommending to every man, woman, and teenager (soft spot for the boys on this one) for years to come. Kingsolver's ability to so keenly love and represent the lost kids, those broken up by poverty and foster homes, is unmatched. The way she can find and portray the physical beauty of southern Appalachia, where she lives and where this novel is set, is magical. It is impossible not to fall in love with Demon Copperhead, the child of an opioid addict and a father he never met, as he does his best to play the hand he’s been dealt. This book has more heart in it than most I’ve read—it's a love song to those whose lots in life were not so gracious. This book is an absolute joy to read and is THE must-read book of the fall!
