    The Rain Queen by Katherine Scholes is a well written entertaining modern day novel based on the lives of 3 missionaries who venture into the most primitive parts of East Africa to bring the Christian gospel to native Africans This is only possible to achieve by offering medical assistance, education, protection and support for needy desperate local people Not surprisingly I found myself unable to accept the enormous level of sacrifice plus the diminished safety of the mission families and won The Rain Queen by Katherine Scholes is a well written entertaining modern day novel based on the lives of 3 missionaries who venture into the most primitive parts of East Africa to bring the Christian gospel to native Africans This is only possible to achieve by offering medical assistance, education, protection and support for needy desperate local people Not surprisingly I found myself unable to accept the enormous level of sacrifice plus the diminished safety of the mission families and wondered whether their small drop of compassion in the ocean of human misery and superstition made any long term changes to the nation as a whole However, for the few people whose lives were touched by the nurse Annah and her fellow missionaries Michael and Sarah the impact was life changing.This book is charged with the power of dedication in the face of odds that would send most people scuttling for home These characters are a certain breed of people They are tenacious, generous, illogical, sometimes bigoted, driven unrelentingly by their chosen calling and always loyal to their hearts while experiencing treachery all around Carinya

    It took me awhile to get into this one but once Annah start s her story, I found I had trouble putting this down.This is a novel whose core is about forgiveness Kate Carrington is a woman haunted by the brutal murder of her missionary parents in Africa when she was only a child The missionaries who raised her tell stories of her parents being martyrs to the cause but their stories are often at odds with Kate s own memories The notoriety and lack of concrete knowledge surrounding the event lea It took me awhile to get into this one but once Annah start s her story, I found I had trouble putting this down.This is a novel whose core is about forgiveness Kate Carrington is a woman haunted by the brutal murder of her missionary parents in Africa when she was only a child The missionaries who raised her tell stories of her parents being martyrs to the cause but their stories are often at odds with Kate s own memories The notoriety and lack of concrete knowledge surrounding the event leads Kate to distance herself from everything that could possibly remind her yet her actions are unconsciously driven by it.Annah Mason is desperate to unburden herself of a difficult truth, she has lead an incredible life that has seen her defy and exceeded everyone around her Hers story is one that you need to start at the beginning to understand the end and it s an extraordinary story filled with isolation and strength.The River Queen is a story of strong women set amongst the backdrop of what becomes Tanzania in time of upheaval Scholes writing is like a lullaby that paints the beauty of the African landscape while never shying away from it s horrors and hardships Beautifully written and gloriously easy to read, it s the type of novel that you fall into and get swept away with, only glancing up to be shocked at the amount of time that has passed.The female presence within this novel is extremely strong At it s core it s a story about strong, resilient women and it s nearly always men that prove to be the obstacles outside of the environment There are, on occasion, some extremely frustrating male arrogance that is so typical Ugh You can see where it s going before it goes but not in a annoyingly predictable way but just in a sigh reality way

    Great read Out of all the books I have read over the last six months, and I have read many, The Rain Queen is one of my favorites You always know when a book is something special it touches your soul with it s content and characters And when you are still thinking about that book weeks after, and recommending it to your friends, you are on to a winner.Plenty of substance, easy to follow but polished writing style, and great cast of characters Well done.

    I enjoyed this easy read very much I liked the characters, especially Kate who s missionary parents untimely death scarred her life and left her with a sense of dislocation and no direction and Annah who s life intermingled with Kate s and ultimately brought her back to Africa The African setting had beautiful imagery and I could almost see in my minds eye the scenes of the hospital and the village and the vastness of the landscapes A good escape.
