Violent memories haunt Joseph Munro. Returning to Liberia years after fleeing as a war refugee, he rediscovers its mystery and natural beauty, but the extreme poverty and scars from decades of bloodshed unleash his memories. Then, his world changes forever when a moral dilemma echoes his family's corrupt history.
To stop Joseph's secrets from swallowing his sanity, a woman whose journey is the opposite of his, a village healer, and a faithless former priest must guide him down cracked and twisted roads to face the warlords who shattered his psyche, an implacable plague, and the ominous spirits of the Liberian bush.
The Devils Came in from the Country follows the journey of a refugee bedeviled by both past and future in his search for a true identity and home. Joseph Munro will learn that we are capable of more than we think, whether for good or for evil.
