The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver


The day and time are the same as always but the venue has changed.  It was decided that it's time for a change in restaurants so, at the suggestion of one of our regular members, I've made a booking at the RUSSIAN FAMILY RESTAURANT.  For information about this restaurant, please check out


The Poisonwood Bible is a story 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. They carry with them everything 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. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

    Really enjoyed the book. Especially glad the father didn't get a "voice" - sorry guys, but if he'd had a chance to explain himself I probably wouldn't have finished it.
