Description

The Poisonwood Bible is a 1998 novel by Barbara Kingsolver. It is a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and Oprah’s Book Club selection. The novel tells the story of an American missionary family who moves to the Belgian Congo in 1959. The family is led by Nathan Price, a Baptist minister who is determined to convert the Congolese people to Christianity. However, the Prices’ arrival coincides with the Congo’s fight for independence from Belgium, and the family soon finds themselves caught in the middle of a violent conflict.

 

 

The novel is narrated by Nathan Price’s four daughters, each of whom offers a unique perspective on the family’s experiences in the Congo. The daughters are Rachel, Leah, Adah, and Ruth May. Rachel is the eldest daughter and the most obedient to her father. Leah is the middle daughter and the most rebellious. Adah is the youngest daughter and suffers from epilepsy. Ruth May is the only daughter born in the Congo.

The Poisonwood Bible is a powerful and moving novel that explores the themes of colonialism, racism, and religion. It is a must-read for anyone interested in African history or the Congo.
