It took me awhile to get through the 500 pages of The Lacuna, but it is a winner. I loved the Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo/Mexico and Asheville, NC connections as well as Harrison's stint working for Trotsky. I initially disliked the character of Violet Brown, but she grew on me as the story unfolded. This book is a lot of fun because of all the links to history that Kingsolver intertwines throughout the story, and I recommend this title.
