then cool blacked sparked with stars and she was still wide awake” (Kingsolver 246). The grey sky may refer to the bittersweet ending of the novel. Taylor gets to take Turtle home with her, however, she has to leave the people that have been there for her and supported her while getting used to raising a child. Taylor suggests that she feels at home in Tucson and enjoys the views of the city by describing it through saying, “The whole Tucson Valley lay in front of us, resting in its cradle of mountains. The sloped desert plain that lay between us and the city was like a palm stretched out for a fortuneteller to read, with its mounds and hillocks, its life lines and heart lines of dry stream beds” The imagery present in the novel permits the reader to better understand the characters. Imagery makes the reader feel like they are a part of their community.
