  1. I LOVE the Poisonwood Bible!!! I have listened to it at least 2o times! At present, I have renewed it twice from our library and listen to it daily while I paint murals in homes and businesses. I am not a reader..hard to paint and read at the same time…however, a good book is the perfect companion for me while I work. The reader is so important. Dean Robertson does a fantastic delivery! I suggested it to my daughter and she purchased the audio book. Only recently, I have found that Poisonwood is NOT your only book. Shame on me for not searching sooner……I can hardly wait to get my hands on the remaining books. My acupuncturist tells me that if I like this book, I will go crazy over the others. Goooooo Barbara Kingsolver…..you are the best!!!! Thank you for your hard work and creativity. You are truly blessed. I have a deep and heartfelt love for your mind and ability to express.
