In Heaven, Oklahoma, pigs are both edible and inspirational! The story begins when a 6-year-old named Turtle is the sole witness to a freak accident. As a result she and her adoptive mother, Taylor, have a moment of celebrity that changes their lives forever. After seeing them on television, Annawake Fourkiller, a young attorney for Oklahoma's Cherokee Nation, claims that Turtle was improperly taken from the tribe. Fear of losing her child sends Taylor fleeing across the country. In the course of the journey Taylor, her mother, and Annawake discover love and wisdom in surprising places, including a heaven where pigs serve as both succulent picnic fare and as guiding lights. This is a dramatic novel of heartbreak and redeeming love that explores family bonds and the many separate truths of the human condition.
