This book is a beautiful, dramatic piece of fiction. Although the story is not true, the events that took place in the Congo most definitely are.
It is wonderfully written and has a way of taking you through the three decades in the lives of these women.
This is definitely a recommended read.
The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it — from garden seeds to Scripture — is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.
