About the book

This is a tale of friendship, love and tragedy set against the mystery and magic of colonial Africa. In this epic tale, love is set to clash with tradition. Zakka, the lead character falls in love with Matta, but the lovebirds cannot consummate their love on account of the fact that Matta’s family is still beholden to her estranged husband, Gora. By tradition, dowry paid on Matta’s head is expected to be returned to the husband when the marriage breaks, but this was not done. In the eyes of tradition, Matta is still Gora’s wife. What’s more, Gora still nurses the hope of reclaiming her hand in marriage. But in the end, love triumphs over tradition.
