Rated 4 out of 5 by from So excited to find out this was a sequel! Read "The Bean Trees" in Highschool and enjoyed it enough that I bought my own copy. While I was looking for that book in store, I saw that Barbara had written another book, so I read the back of it. I always wondered what had happened to Turtle. Blazed through this book. This book has had a home in my book collection ever since.
