Born in Ghana, the young and beautiful Peace Osei grows up, struggling to find her place among her mother, sister, friends, education. Everything and everybody seems to be against her. As a result of sexual intercourse she becomes a mother of Dante at a young age. Her friend, Mohammed leaves her immediately, doesn't care about Peace of his son, but returns every now and then to claim his heritage. Daniel, another frightening man eventually rapes Peace. And Jason, friend of both Mohammed and Peace plays a middle man, but can't accept the discovery of Peace turning to heroin to find peace and heaven on earth. In a bizarre accident Dante dies. When all there's left is an empty pocket and empty home, Peace starts a radical withdrawal from her addiction. Will she succeed? Will she finally find peace? Peace is a well-crafted novel, vividly describing the withdrawal symptoms, the problematic youth and the search for meaningful relationships vividly. I enjoyed reading it.
