Bean Trees Have you ever been put into I situation in which you can stay and never prosper or leave, with nothing but mere material possessions? This is the dilemma that is brought forth to Marietta (Taylor) in the novel The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. Marietta grew up in Pitman, a small rural town in Kentucky. A town in which families "had kids just about as fast as they could fall down the well and drown" needless to say not a town where many people would want to live. Marietta was one of these people not wanting to be one of the families mentioned above. So she decided to leave, sounds like a simple solution, but the trials and tribulations along the way created an opportunity for education that far exceeds anything that can be learned in school. Not what is the square root of sixty- four but problems that can cause a person to think that they are not capable of overcoming the roadblocks of life. Strength in a time of suffering is a vital part of surviving through out the many rough times of life. The suffering is a lot easier to deal with when you have people around you that can relate to your troubles and help teach you how to overcome them. Money, money is a problem that many people can relate to.
