Description

2016 Vineland. 

Meet Willa Knox, a woman who stands braced against the vicissitudes of her shattered life and family - and the crumbling house that contains her.

1871 Vineland.

Thatcher Greenwood, the new science teacher, is a fervent advocate of the work of Charles Darwin, and he is keen to communicate his ideas to his students. But those in power in Thatcher's small town have no desire for a new world order. Thatcher and his teachings are not welcome.

Both Willa and Thatcher resist the prevailing logic. Both are asked to pay a high price for their courage.

A testament to the power and goodness of human spirit, Unsheltered explores the foundations we build, crossing time and place to give us all a little more hope in those around us, and a little more faith in ourselves.

©2018 Barbara Kingsolver (P)2018 Faber Audio

A beautifully written slow story

If you like beautiful slice of life type reads, this will be up your alley. Some interesting thoughts and great characters but nothing really happens so it just sort of ambles along. Had to listen at 1.2 speed as the narration is really slow.

Labouring the message

Barbara Kingsolver has written many good books. Perhaps the flaws came out when listening to the audible version of this one. And yes, the messages were clear and will stay with me - our fortunes turn on a dime, the generation gap, what we need to learn from millenials, and more ..... but it was all quite laboured and felt like a beating.
