I have a theory about the genesis of this novel By the time she wrote her first novel the beloved The Bean Trees it s clear that Kingsolver was already deeply invested in social justice issues But she missed one when her protagonist a young woman named Taylor traveled through Cherokee tribal lands in Oklahoma just long enough to unwittingly rescue a battered native toddler dumped on her by a frightened aunt And when Taylor returned with the best of intentions it was to fraudulently adopt the child without the knowledge of the tribeAs I envision events a Cherokee reader talked to Kingsolver about this pointing out that Cherokee have large extended families who would miss the child that after a long history of genocide and other abuses at the hands of white America including the removal of children tribes need to hang onto their kids if they are to survive hence the Indian Child Welfare Act which among other things prohibits outside adoptions without the tribe s consent and that Taylor who is physically and culturally white despite a Cherokee great grandparent is uneuipped to teach Turtle about her heritage or how to deal with racismSo Kingsolver as we all should do when confronted with our oversights recognized the problem and set out to fix it And this seuel was bornPigs in Heaven picks up three years after the end of The Bean Trees Turtle gets her fifteen minutes of fame when she witnesses an accident and a newly minted Cherokee lawyer named Annawake who has a personal stake in ICWA hears her story and realizes something is fishy After a visit from Annawake Taylor panics and takes off with Turtle but her mother Alice just out of a brief and unsatisfying marriage takes a different tack going to stay with a relative on tribal lands in hopes of amicably resolving the problem and getting to know Turtle s extended familyI actually liked this book better than The Bean Trees Kingsolver has clearly matured as an author The plot is focused and cohesive and flows smoothly without ever feeling slow It follows several major characters while keeping everything moving and the reader eager to know what will happen next It examines the central issues from all sides and with empathy for everyone involved all of whom make mistakes but are trying to do the best they can for Turtle Yes it can be predictable but in this case I don t see that as a flaw this story is built not on suspense but on family relationships and I enjoyed sinking into the characters journey and guessing at where it would lead them The writing style is good and endows the book with warmth and wisdomMeanwhile Kingsolver seems to have done her research or rather the friends she credits in the acknowledgments did a thorough job of educating her I read a legit Cherokee book right after this in part to check her facts which checked out But there are also subtle things like the story that s told to two different people and slightly differently each time that readers familiar with Cherokee culture will likely appreciate If anything life on tribal lands seems a little idealized there s a lot of family values community and tradition with social problems acknowledged but kept out of sight though much of this is related through Alice s point of view and I suspect that her experiences as a visitor to tribal lands were reasonably enough based on Kingsolver sMy two issues with the book aren t with the writing One is that there are several continuity errors between the first book and this one The legal first name April that Taylor gave Turtle on adoption vanishes Alice and Taylor s Cherokee ancestor changes from a grandfather to a grandmother significant because clan passes through the female line Taylor s father goes from a mystery man about whom Alice would only say that he was nobody Taylor knew to an ex husband about whom she s not reluctant to speak when necessary The other is about judging other people s parenting than anything else Taylor makes several uestionable choices that are never called out in the narrative from moving herself and Turtle in with a boyfriend about whom she s not that serious to telling the real story of her abandonment on national TV which is not only stupid because it s inconsistent with official records but publicly telling the story in front of Turtle and allowing it to be made light of seems hurtful But real people aren t perfect so characters shouldn t be eitherOverall I really enjoyed this book which tells a compelling story about contemporary issues with good writing and populated by sympathetic
