Awesome debut…I really enjoyed reading this novel. This isn’t just Crazy Rich Asians set in Ghana…its more than that. Afie enters into a marriage knowing that her husband has another woman, whom he will leave shortly. Although her husband is in love with this other woman, her marriage provides her with luxuries she could have never imagined. Between balancing an absent husband, enjoying her luxuries and meeting the demands of her family members, Afie is stuck between a life she wants and a life she is expected to lead. Naturally, the female characters are pitted against each other at times, but they are all strong, intelligent and bold in their own ways. This is a book about women breaking traditions and finding their voice in a society where they are expected to keep quiet!
