Barbara Kingsolver's fifth novel is a hymn to wildness that celebrates the prodigal spirit of human nature, and of nature itself. It weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives amid the mountains and farms of southern Appalachia. Over the course of one humid summer, this novel's intriguing protagonists face disparate predicaments but find connections to one another and to the flora and fauna with which they necessarily share a place.

Kingsolver has amazed me once again! This book was sultry, packed full of emotion and heart. I absolutely loved it!
I absolutely fell in love with these characters. A very well written work of fiction although could be real life memoirs. I have purchased this as gifts for many of my friends. A great Book Club read as well with fun discussions. I'm still waiting for a sequel though !
The quintessential summer read
Barbara Kingsolver's "Prodigal Summer" never fails to satisfy my craving for a cracking good set of stories told with humor and inspiration. In many places her prose rises to the level if sensual poetry, drunk with the wonders of all creation, but with a sober knowledge of human folly. I read it nearly every year and don't plan to stop any time soon.
