For the 2012 Monopoly Challenge hosted by Vekiki, turn 3, for Team Battleship.

"Clara Musson, the only daughter of a wealthy British widower, falls in love with charismatic missionary Robert Haslam. Despite her father's frantic fears for her safety, she travels to southern Africa with her new husband to support his efforts to convert to Christianity the powerful chief Mponda of the Venda tribe. There she finds a beautiful, harsh world of pride and long-held custom that is being split down the middle by the increasing British and German oppression of the African tribes until finally they rise up against the white settlers, miners, and soldiers. Jeal's setting is vivid and the passions of his characters deeply felt, but the rapidly shifting points of view, often between three or more voices in a page, result in a choppy and ultimately uninvolving narrative. Still, Jeal has chosen the landscape he knows well: the dramatic canvas of Africa at the turn of the century. Historical fiction buffs will be appreciative."

Released 6 yrs ago (5/5/2012 UTC) at Old Stone Church Site in Leesburg, Virginia USA


This book was left, along with a nice display, under the information pagoda at the Old Stone Church site. This release is part of the Monopoly 2012 Challenge, Turn 3. Our challenge was "Historic Places", so we chose to release a book at The Old Stone Church Site, the physical site of the first Methodist Church property in the United States. The Church's possession of the property dates back to 1766. You can read more about the fascinating history of the location here:

Driving from Atlanta Georgia to our home in NY, we stopped to visit an old friend in Reston, Virginia. One day during our visit we stopped in Leesburg for lunch and afterward went out for a walk. We came across the Old Stone Church site and found a book with an invitation to take it home! How cool is that?
We got home a week later, around May 12th, but this book got misplaced while we were unpacking. We just came across it today. We'll read it and release it soon, somewhere around Kingston, NY.
