Lusa Landowski is an outsider who becomes stranded in Zebulon county after her young husband's tragic death.

One of my favorite books. I recommend this to a lot of people and I keep multiple copies so I can give it away to someone when I know they will love it.

How do I know they will love it? When someone brings up a love of nature and/or an understanding of the interconnectedness between nature and people, I recommend "Prodigal Summer."

The book speaks to that aforementioned interconnectedness and the value of the ecosystem and the vitality and importance of it and the creatures in it. It's a wonderful read. Kingsolver writes the most beautiful stories. ( )

Loved this story. Author did a wonderful job narrating her own story. It only added to the charm.

I tagged it romance but I see most people do not. There are two "couples" in the story. They are generations apart and their relationships are dramatically different but both are very realistic.

As each chapter began there was a bird song. I believe the same one throughout. I hear, at least one of the birds that participated, in my own yard. Nice to be brought back to the story when I hear that bird. ( )

I loved the way that science as entwined within the stories of this book. I loved that the characters were strong women. I loved the descriptions of the forest and farming, which unlike some books didn’t seem to come in clumps, but were part of the story itself. I loved the grumpy old man and the mad old lady. I hated the frayed, unresolved feel of the end. ( )

Ok,it took me 4 months to get through this mostly because I had a move and the holidays smack in the middle but all in all I liked this book. I liked that even when the book ended I still felt like the characters stories would keep going. It wasn't as good as poisonwood bible, but it was an enjoyable read. ( )

Readers hoping for the emotional intensity and wide-angle vision of ''The Poisonwood Bible,'' Kingsolver's magnificent 1998 epic about a self-destructing missionary family in the newly independent Congo, will most likely be disappointed. But the legions of fans primed on earlier books like ''Animal Dreams'' and ''The Bean Trees'' will find themselves back on familiar, well-cleared ground of plucky heroines, liberal politics and vivid descriptions of the natural world.
 
In an improbably appealing book with the feeling of a nice stay inside a terrarium, Ms. Kingsolver means to illustrate the nature of biological destiny and provide enlightened discourse on various ecological matters.

Prothalamium
Come, all you who are not satisfied
as ruler in a lone, wallpapered room
full of mute birds, and flowers that falsely bloom,
and closets choked with dreams that long ago died!
Come, let us sweep the old streets--like a bride:
sweep out dead leaves with a relentless broom;
prepare for Spring, as though he were our greem
for whose light footstep eagerly we bide.
We'll sweep out shadows, where the rats long fed;
sweep out our shame--and in its place we'll make
a bower for love, a splendid marriage-bed
fragrant with flowers aquiver for the Spring.
And when he comes, our murdered dreams shall wake;
and when he comes, all the mute birds shall sing.
