The Bean Trees: A Novel is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.

Clear-eyed and spirited, Taylor Greer grew up poor in rural Kentucky with the goals of avoiding pregnancy and getting away. But when she heads west with high hopes and a barely functional car, she meets the human condition head-on. By the time Taylor arrives in Tucson, Arizona, she has acquired a completely unexpected child, a three-year-old American Indian girl named Turtle, and must somehow come to terms with both motherhood and the necessity for putting down roots. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places.

Available for the first time in mass-market, this edition of Barbara Kingsolver's bestselling novel, The Bean Trees, will be in stores everywhere in September. With two different but equally handsome covers, this book is a fine addition to your Kingsolver library.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Bean Trees By: Barbara Kingsolver Lovely story about a young women growing up poor very with few advantages or opportunities in life. However she has a clear value system, which see's her through some very difficult challenges. A wonderful sweet heartwarming story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Book This review is in response to the others listed here. This was a very good book. The characters and the plot are well developed. Barbara Kingsolver is a great author, she knows how to write a great novel. It can be looked upon as a coming-of-age novel, but with a twist, and something that all age groups can appriciate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pre-teen read This book starts off pleasently enough, it seems to be setting the stage for something exciting. Though the main character's low class repelled me a little at first. Characters fall just short of the Jerry springer show. It tells the tail of an average Joe (or Jane as the case may be) A woman who's directionless life is interupted by a child. A very easy read. Has a somewhat profound ending, but not enough to justify reading the book. Perhaps best suited for those ages 12-14.
