This is the story of Jeanette, adopted and brought up by her mother as one of God's elect. Zealous and passionate, she seems destined for life as a missionary, but then she falls for one of her converts. At sixteen, Jeanette decides to leave the church, her home and her family, for the young woman she loves. Innovative, intoxicating and tender, "Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit" is a journey to the bizarre outposts of religious excess and an exploration of love.

“Patience required but also rewarded. ”

Not the easiest book to read as I found it to be, at times, utterly bewildering. However, there is no denying that Winterson knows how to write and she occasional creates a sentence so beautiful and profound that it... More
