From Barbara Kingsolver, the acclaimed author of Flight Behavior, The Lacuna, The Bean Trees, and other modern classics, Animal Dreams is a passionate and complex novel about love, forgiveness, and one woman’s struggle to find her place in the world.
At the end of her rope, Codi Noline returns to her Arizona home to face her ailing father, with whom she has a difficult, distant relationship. There she meets handsome Apache trainman Loyd Peregrina, who tells her, “If you want sweet dreams, you’ve got to live a sweet life.”
Filled with lyrical writing, Native American legends, a tender love story, and Codi’s quest for identity, Animal Dreams is literary fiction at it’s very best.
This edition includes a P.S. section with additional insights from Barbara Kingsolver, background material, suggestions for further reading, and more.
Codi Noline, her self-confidence flagging after failures in med school and in a relationship, returns home to Grace, Ariz., where she renews a romance, comes to understand her father and worries about her sister, Hallie, who is helping farmers in Nicaragua. PW called this a ``well-nigh perfect novel, masterfully written, brimming with insight, humor and compassion.'' $40,000 ad/promo.

The book Is beautiful. It bring you in a new world that makes it feel real
This book was simply beautiful. I absolutely loved it when I read it for the first time. If you've read The Bean Trees, I completely recommend getting this book and vise versa!!
I envy the person who reads this book for the first time! Every few years I buy and read this wonderful book again, then pass it on to a lucky person.
