    Barbara Kingsolver is the bestselling author of the novels, The Bean Trees and Pigs in Heaven, as well as collected essays, High Tide in Tucson. The Poisonwood Bible was an Oprah Book Club pick. She lives in Arizona.

    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 all 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.

    This tale of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction, over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa, is set against history's most dramatic political parables.

    The Poisonwood Bible dances between the darkly comic human failings and inspiring poetic justices of our times. In a compelling exploration of religion, conscience, imperialist arrogance, and the many paths to redemption, Barbara Kingsolver has brought forth her most ambitious work ever.

    • A thrilling companion

      I read this book, The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver several years ago and thought it was excellent. A friend of mine had the audiobook version and said it was one of her all-time favorites and best narrated audio books ever. Truthfully, I bought it for my sister as a gift. She's on the road a lot and I thought it would be good company. It arrived promptly, was packaged nicely and you couldn't beat the price.
