“A lush novel, rich with tension and intricately woven, believable characters.  Myers clearly loves the <_st13a_country-region _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Congo—and you will love this book. I did!”<_o3a_p>

—Mary Alice Monroe, bestselling author of Last Light over Carolina<_o3a_p>


With The Witch Doctor’s Wife, Tamar Myers delves into her personal history as the daughter of Christian missionaries in the <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">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.”<_o3a_p>

Tamar Myers is the author of the Belgian Congo series and the Den of Antiquity series as well as the Pennsylvania-Dutch mysteries. Born and raised in the Congo, she lives in North Carolina.
