This book's plot meandered all over the place, aimlessly knitting together the threads of the story then unravelling somewhere down the road and over and over again. I feel that the author was trying too hard to be authentic and African, but because of this she lost sight of the plot. The drama was too much; I know there are stories that are tragedies but this was too tragic that it became unbelievable. I expected more from a Kenyan story written by a Kenyan author.
