The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
The Poisonwood Bible

tinahartpdx, October 14, 2013

This is one of my most favorite books. Kingsolver crafts the tale from the viewpoints of a mother and her 4 children working as missionaries in the Congo. Their father/husband is not given a distinct voice in the book but instead his character is built through the women. Each voice is distinctly different without being unbelievable. The book is suspenseful, at times frustrating, and very human. It's one that I enjoy reading and re-reading to see how my opinions and views of the characters change based on my own growth.
