Description
"A lush novel, rich with tension and intricately woven, believable characters. Myers clearly loves theCongo--and you will love this book. I did!"

--Mary Alice Monroe, bestselling author of Last Light over Carolina

With The Witch Doctor's Wife, Tamar Myers delves into her personal history as the daughter of Christian missionaries in theBelgian Congo . Rich and alive with the sights and sounds of the continent--as exciting, evocative, charming, and suspenseful as Alexander McCall Smith's No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency novels--Myer's unforgettable excursion to colonial Africa recalls Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible, even the Academy Award-nominated film Blood Diamond. Award-winning author Carolyn Hart raves: "M esmerizing.... The Witch Doctor's Wife will long linger in the hearts and minds of readers. Authentic. Powerful. Triumphant."
