Description - The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

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, The Poisonwood Bible is the story of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa. They carry with them all 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.'The Poisonwood Bible shows what happens when one of the most talented writers of our generation comes to maturity.[It] ranks with the most ambitious works of postcolonial literature and it should at last establish Kingsolver's reputation in Europe as one of America's most gifted novelists.'
