Characters are compelling in 'Flight Behavior'


Barbara Kingsolver’s latest offering is a wakeup call for global warming.

Set in a small town in Appalachia, Dellarobia Turnbow is the feisty main character. Pregnant at 17, she marries a local farm boy and settles into a claustrophobic decade with two young children, a loyal but dim-witted husband, and critical in-laws struggling with a failing sheep farm on which all the Turnbows’ economic future depends.
