The Three Books of Shama
An epic chronicle of Rwandan born Shama's struggles and triumphs as an immigrant.
"Aside from instances of brutal memory evoking the horrors of mass murder and bloodshed, this novel utilizes conflicts and plot—driven by unending tension and suspense in building hope amid a narrative that delves into the past—to conjure for the reader the relationships of Christian men and Muslim women who are bonded by forbidden love…. Kwakye [uses] … a novel divided into three books of suspense, tension, secrets and violence, to resurrect from the horrors of the past links that seem to find endless connections to the situations trailing the narratives of characters concerned with future dreams and goals." – Eclectica Magazine
