I loved reading this book right from the first chapter. Got me hooked 💯. This books throws light on the Ghanaian culture, a woman’s search for her independence and finding her voice in a culturally driven society (Ghana). It’s about choosing one’s happiness and peace of mind above all else. Will definitely recommend!

Content warning for emotional abuse, manipulation, and related topics. I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I spent a lot of time thinking about self and identity, as well as gender and social expectations. I don't know very much about Ghanaian culture, so it was interesting to see how families functioned and the confines that Afi had to work within. There was a lot of time spent on the family drama. It would have spoiled some of the reveal the author set up, but I would have loved to see some writing from Muna's perspective.

This is a phenomenal story of a woman coming into who she truly is and knowing what she deserves. The story follows Afi, a young Ghanaian woman who has experienced the standard of what life has to offer until she is arranged to be married to what I imagine, based on the description, to be a fine well-to-do specimen, unfortunately this man is in an entanglement that has his family off the rails and calling afi for assistance. It’s a must read! Your emotions will be all over the place and the ending will have you truly thinking about how twisted your own mind is cause the decision she makes would most definitely not be the decision I’d make!
