The housemaid by Amma Darko( Book )

A dead baby and bloodstained clothes are discovered near a small village in Ghana. Everyone is ready to comment on the likely story behind the abandoned infant. The men have one opinion, the women another. As the story rapidly unfolds it becomes clear that seven different women played their part in the drama. All of them are caught in a web of superstition, ignorance, greed and corruption
Not without flowers by Amma Darko( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and German and held by 122 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)
