The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver

The Bean Trees (1988)
The gist: Kentucky girl Taylor heads to Arizona, adopts a Cherokee girl, and falls for a (taken) immigrant.

The culture shock: Her eye-opening travels and her beloved's refugee ordeal make Taylor "feel like a foreigner" (as she puts it) in her own country.

The big question: When do you have the right to love somebody who's not yours?
