|Plot Summary of Prodigal Summer|
|"In this novel, Barabara Kingsolver explores the relationships between humans and the world that they inhabit through the use of three interrelated plot lines. One of these involves a naturalist who lives alone on a mountain, and has an affair with a hunter. Another involves a recent widow struggling with her inlaws, and trying to keep her farm going. The third involves an old man's struggles with his eccentric neighbor. "
