Not without flowers by Amma Darko ( )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A new novel from a scion of the new generation of writers in Africa. She tells the story of women in Africa: here it is misery, pain, agony , dilemmas, frustrations. She floats the reader on a world of inverted reality, which yet becomes the norm. With creative imagination, confronting the social realities, she seeks out the world of peace and tranquillity. But not without verisimilitude. The extremes of moral turpitude beget horrid outcomes, leaving suspense rather than resolution. Amma Darko is one of the most significant contemporary Ghanaian literary writers. She is the author of three previous novels: Faceless (Sub-Saharan, 2003), The Housemaid (Heinemann, 1999) and Beyond the Horizon (Heinemann, 1995)
Beyond the horizon by Amma Darko ( Book )
15 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gazing at her naked body in the mirror, Mara reflects on her transformation from naive Ghanaian village girl into a prostitute in a German brothel." "Mara has been deceived by her husband, Akobi, into coming to Europe to find a 'paradise', but as the truth about Akobi and her new life unfolds she realises she is trapped. The expectations of her family in Africa force her to remain, living a lie." "Beyond the Horizon is a gripping and provocative story of the plight of African women in Europe, and the false hopes of those they leave behind."--Jacket
