The Poisonwood Bible
This is an Oprah’s Book Club Classic. Barbara Kingsolver is a great storyteller and very intricate with details. Some have found this story slow, but I loved the way that the author wrote it. Each chapter is told from a different characters point of view. Follow the family of Nathan Price, a Baptist preacher, into the Congo in 1959.
I read this book about 8 years ago but I still recommend it to my friends. I might be adding it to my must read book again for this summer.
