How The Bean Trees is a coming of age themed novel In The Bean Trees Taylor and Lou Ann struggle to come of age, or mature, with these two being very important characters I believe a major theme of the book is coming of age. There are many pieces of evidence to support this claim, therefore I will provide them. Our first example would have to be Taylor’s journey throughout the book. By this I mean how she continued to understand what she needed to do and did those things no matter the difficulty. An instance would be when she was stuck with Turtle, Or maybe how she made sure to hunt for a job to keep a roof over her and Turtle’s head. Lou Ann doesn’t begin maturing until she meets Taylor as we find out she cannot speak about her problems
