    When Julia Elaine Newton, a young, pretty Ohio girl, volunteered to go on a mission to the Belgian Congo, she knew it was going to be a huge change. But she never expected to wind up teaching at an all-girls boarding school that consisted mostly of runaway child brides!

    I found this series of books to be humorous. Mostly a nice chuckle but sometimes I burst out laughing. Over all its a nice comfortable ride.
