Email this review


An absorbing story with something of the appeal of Anna and the King of Siam, is this novel of the Congo and an American woman sent as a Baptist missionary. From the author's intimate knowledge of the Africa she loves and missionary work in which she had participated, an exciting and authentic portrait of living and working in that exotic region has been woven. There is a good story -- the woman taking over a jungle post and winning the confidence and affection of the natives -- and a colorful background. Valuable regional material here, as well as inspiration for social and religious vocations.
