The Poisonwood Bible – Barbara Kingsolver

I must have looked at this book countless times in libraries and bookshops, but somehow something always put me off. I’m glad that I broke through that “bible” barrier in my last Barbican browse as The Poisonwood Bible is a fantastic book. It provides a great story, told by 5 of the female players, with the action moving from the root of the saga set in 1960s colonial Africa, onwards through events and locations in 1970s and 1980s in both America and Africa.
