Abstract:

A renowned surgeon and failed husband, Kwaku Sai succumbs suddenly at dawn outside the home he shares in Ghana with his second wife. The news of Kwaku's death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. In the wake of Kwaku's death, the family gathers in Ghana, at their mother, Fola's, new home. The eldest son and his new wife; the mysterious, beautiful twins; their baby sister, now a young woman--all come together for the first time in years, each carrying secrets of his own. What is revealed in their coming together is the story of how they came apart. But the horrible fragility of the world they have built soon becomes clear, and Kwaku's leaving begets a series of betrayals that none of them could have imagined. Splintered, alone, each navigates his pain, believing that what has been lost can never be recovered--until, in Ghana, a new way forward, a new family, begins to emerge.
