Review

To this day, I remember a single scene in this book as one of the most powerfully written I have ever read. It has only gained potency now that I am a mother. This book reaches out and grapples with big themes but in the intimate relationships of a family who goes to the Congo because of the father’s missionary zeal. The beautiful writing and great story overcome the tiny bit of blatant political commentary that shows up.
