Throughout their two-week stay, Lou Ann's mother and grandmother do their best to avoid Angel.  They help Lou Ann with the baby, and Granny Logan manages to complain about everything — from  the Tucson heat to Lou Ann's moving far away from home and marrying a "heathern" Mexican who  commits the sin of working on Sundays. She even insists on wearing her winter coat to the bus in  eighty-degree heat simply because it's January — at home in Kentucky, it's cold. In describing  Granny Logan, Kingsolver uses imagery similar to that found in poetry: "Her old hand pawed the air  for a few seconds before Ivy silently caught it and corralled it in the heavy black sleeve." Getting ready to leave for the bus, Lou Ann's mother brings her suitcase into the room. Lou Ann

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
