This book has fully captivated me!!!!!!!
I became immersed in this story, thinking about the characters when just going about my day, eager to get back to reading. At times a bit overwhelming in the desperation of the situations, but so realistic. I adore Kingsolver and the characters she creates. I will be thinking about this one for a while.

Am I doing this #litsywalker thing the right way? 🤓
very interesting read so far 🧐
Wow! I‘m super late to the party on this one, but I‘m glad I finally read it. So much wisdom, but even more importantly, just a damn good story with a perfect ending.
“What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence?” I am familiar with this quote, but was so excited to read it in the context of its essay, “The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action”!
A cutesy book that takes itself too seriously. Facile and exploitative at times. BUT some interesting historical tidbits and a hearty reminder of the magic of intention. Also counts for three different reading challenges I‘m doing this year. 💪🏼
Accessible, honest, feel-good introduction to some of my favorite things.
Ok, so I had issues with this book, but they were issues I knew I‘d probably have, so 🤷🏻♀️What I didn‘t enjoy was the typical Christian talk, as well as the heteronormative talk. What I loved was the stories—the ones about his kids, the “Ryan in Love” chapter and the one about Don Valencia. I appreciated his insights about “whimsy” and love in action. Lastly, the format and feel of this book was a perfect way for me to get back into audiobooks!
Sneaking some reading into my cozy morning routine.
I will be thinking about this book for a long time. The character development was deep and slow and totally worth it. It just got juicier and more painful the further in I got. I cried my way through the last 100 pages.
