I loved this collection of short stories. I wished each one would've kept going into a full-length book! The only two I didn't care for were Bereaved Apartments and Jump-up Day. I didn't understand the point of them. But the rest were superb! You can't miss with Barbara Kingsolver. She is one of my all-time favorite authors.

enjoyed the book, easy read. Barbara has written another book that takes the reader to other places. Would recommend it without reservations.

Lovers whose relationship nearly founders when a new environment changes both partners in ways neither expects. A woman working in a 'man's job' (mining) who suffers the consequences of a strike in ways no man possibly could. A seemingly pleasant neighbor who abuses an elderly lady's trust, but doesn't see his own actions in that light. In each of these 12 short stories, Barbara Kingsolver draws her characters clearly and says something worth remembering about life, love, and human nature. Not every writer can handle this format and the novel equally well, but Kingsolver's touch is as deft here as in her much longer works. Especially good reading for those nights when you don't want (or can't afford) to be kept up by a book you can't put down!

'Homeland and Other Stories' showcases Barbara Kingsolver's remarkable ear for heartland speech as well as her talent for painting the every day struggles of people through exquisite but understated detail. Kingsolver never falls into melodrama nor does she show disrespect for her characters. This is a beautiful and powerful collection.
