Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Incredible story of a missionary family living in the Congo in 1960-61 and how each is affected by the experience. The characters are carefully drawn and developed and the locale and conditions wonderfully described from the points of view of the various family members. Historic context and incidents are included. A fantastic book.

Saw the author on Oprah. She said she’d written each chapter from the perspective of EACH of the daughters and the wife, then chose her favorite version. So she actually wrote this novel five times!

This writer demonstrates the art of really good writing. Please note that it takes a little while to get into this book and understand what she is doing. However, soon you will be drawn into the lives of the characters and really feel like you are living in the heart of the Congo (now Zaire). Although the author is a bit preachy at times, none the less, this is a truly excellent and enjoyable book.
