The Poisonwood Bible Book 3, Chapter 3

By Barbara Kingsolver

Book 3, Chapter 3

Ruth May

  • Ruth May is still in bed and hoping her father never comes back. We're right there with you, Ruthie.
  • All she does in this short chapter is tell us about a dream she had. She climbed to the top of a tree, and she could see everything—children, adults, people's thoughts.
  • Yikes. Sounds like a Twilight Zone episode.
