Publisher's Summary

With The Witch Doctor’s Wife, Tamar Myers delves into her personal history as the daughter of Christian missionaries in the Belgian Congo. Rich and alive with the sights and sounds of the continent—as exciting, evocative, charming, and suspenseful as Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency novels—Myer’s unforgettable excursion to colonial Africa recalls Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible, even the Academy Award-nominated film Blood Diamond. Award-winning author Carolyn Hart raves: “Mesmerizing….The Witch Doctor’s Wife will long linger in the hearts and minds of readers. Authentic. Powerful. Triumphant.”

Critic Reviews

“A lush novel, rich with tension and intricately woven, believable characters. Myers clearly loves the Congo—and you will love this book. I did!” (Mary Alice Monroe, bestselling author of Last Light over Carolina)

Mesmerizing!

A eye opening story of the Belgium Congo at the brink of Independence. A white woman missionary is placed in the middle of greed, murder, theft, diamonds, and racial tensions. But what can one woman do??

Excellent!

The story was engaging. The additional insights on Congo wildlife and culture was a treat. They unravelled the mystery in a clever and intriguing way and right up to the end kept me interested in a great story. I WILL read on!
