An original story; fresh and realistic. It is a book about topical issues inNigerian marriages, culture clashes, childlessness, pride and humility, grief and pain, love and joy, politics, the diverse forms of religion inherent in Nigeria. It is a book about qualities and values which transcend culture, ethnicity. A book about profound nature of an African thriving in the midst of adversity. The Triumph of the Water Lily is a celebration of womanhood. It is a moving exploration of life and death, in which Effua, the narrator, tells of a passionate story of trial and tribulation, of the triumph of love and life, even in the throes of death. The novel attests to the nobility, elegance and profound goodness of Nkem, the central character. It is also a courageous story of romance filled with excitement, novelty and moments of shock, particularly for Effua, whose life has been inexorably influenced by Nkem's.

Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage

Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage

Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage is a fictional narrative, which examines the consequences of being a person of racially mixed parentage in our world today. It is a thrilling and critical appreciation of such experiences as told by Miranda - the heroine; experiences that would be familiar to many people of similar background. The novel uniquely and dispassionately explores issues from both sides of the racial divide. It challenges stereo-typical perceptions; love and hate, power and influence. It is a story of healing, of hope and of promise for a racially divided world. Miranda takes the reader through her life in Britain, Ghana and the USA. "Am I 'White' or 'Black'", she asks?
