Description

Based on actual events in Tamar Myers's life, The Girl Who Married an Eagle is a beautiful addition to her Belgian Congo mystery series

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!

Much to her chagrin, Buakane was born beautiful. If only she'd been ugly, Chief Eagle would not have noticed her. Escaping from an arranged marriage, the scrappy young girl finds her way to Julia Newton and the school. But this time her jilted husband will not be denied. Now it's up to Julia and Buakane to try to save the school as Congolese independence looms and Chief Eagle is set on revenge. With the help of Cripple, Cripple's husband, and even Amanda Brown, these plucky women must learn to save themselves.

Publishers Weekly Review

Mar 25, 2013 – Flashes of talent are evident in Myers’s uneven fourth and final Belgian Congo mystery (after 2012’s The Boy Who Stole the Leopard’s Spots). The main action opens with the winning line, “Julia Elaine Newton was young and naïve, but she was not altogether stupid”; the novel then goes on to recount Julia’s experiences as a missionary whom the locals dub “She Whose Name One Can’t Be Bothered to Remember.” And every so often, Myers comes up with a memorable way of describing the land where she was born and spent her early years (e.g., “Travel in the Belgian Congo was like pulling the handle on a slot machine—one that was rigged so that it never came up with three matching numbers”). But those looking for a mystery storyline are likely to be disappointed. Julia’s confrontations with a chief intent on getting his wife back will strike many as stagy rather than dramatic.
