The Poisonwood Bible

by Barbara Kingsolver

Narrated 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, this is a brilliant story. Each of the daughters has a voice which is completely their own and you see this world through their eyes. I cannot recommend it highly enough, a must read!

Man oh man are we in for it now, was my thinking about the Congo from the instant we first set foot. We are supposed to be calling the shots here, but it doesn't look to me like we're in charge of a thing, not even our own selves.
