Esi is a modern African woman who is highly educated and extremely career-centered. She marries Oko out of gratitude. Their only child, Ogyaanowa, is neglected in favor of Esi's job as a data analyst for the Department of Urban Statistics. After she is raped by Oko, she divorces him and enters into a relationship with Ali, believing that it holds the freedom she desires.

I enjoyed this book very much, the story enfolds very fetchingly.

It is not the usual African woman-gets-badly-treated-by-men plot. I like Esi and her struggle to find happiness and respect. I would have liked to read a bit more about her friend Opokuya. And Ogyaanowas part was downplayed too much - right in the beginning you get to know her from the child's perspective and then she gets nearly forgotten, only from time to time mentioned from an outside perspective.

A great read - go for it :-)

Counts for Ghana.

Professor Ama Ata Aidoo, née Christina Ama Aidoo (born 23 March 1940, Saltpond) is a Ghanaian author, playwright, politician and academic.

Aidoo's works of fiction particularly deal with the tension between Western and African world views. Many of her protagonists are women who defy the stereotypical women's roles of their time. Her novel Changes, won the 1992 Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best Book (Africa).

This is now a ring:

Bekommen für die 1 Jahr= 1 Land- Challenge für Ghana. Mal sehen, wann es drankommt... Danke olagorie! :-)

09/2016: A surprisingly feministic book, I enjoyed reading. The author seems to be a smart woman.

In the challenge it counts for GHANA.
