This was fascinating to read, to see through new eyes, so to speak. It is the story of Okonwo, a strong and hard-working leader of the Igbo village of Umuofia, Nigeria. Set in the late nineteenth century, the story is of how Okonwo's family and village change with the influence of British colonialism and Christian missionaries.
