About the book:
Barbara Kingsolver’s bestselling novel Pigs in Heaven follows Turtle, a young Native American girl, and and her adoptive mother, Taylor Greer. They have just settled in Tucson, Arizona and are doing their best to overcome difficult pasts.
When a lawyer for the Cherokee Nation begins to investigate Taylor's adoption of Turtle, the new life is interrupted before it even begins.
Pigs in Heaven depicts a clash between family love and tribal law, and weaves together themes of poverty, abandonment, and belonging. Pigs in Heaven is a morally wrenching, gently humorous work of fiction that speaks equally to the head and the heart.
