The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver

Barbara Kingsolver has written another great novel. The Lacuna, is imaginative, well-researched, interesting, thought-provoking, and—of course—beautifully written.  The story takes place during the turbulence of the thirties and forties in Mexico and the United States, evoking some political and social parallels for today.  It’s a great story to be enjoyed on many levels by readers with a variety of tastes.
