The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

A tale of misplaced evangelicalism deep in Africa.

The setting is the Belgian Congo and an American family is stranded in the early 1960s at a time of independence.

This historical novel is a fascinating read and captures the uncertainty of the time and the threat and danger of violence.

The Baptist belief at that time had no place on this African soil. A good read.
