Ejine Okoroafor, the acclaimed author of A Rose in Bloom, and its’ sequel, Pathos of A Wilting Rose, serves a delectable short stories collection.
While sustaining the fast dying genre of short stories, she pays reverence to her beloved hometown, Oguta and tells the immigrant’s story.
A masterful storyteller, with her unique and unassuming style, the author easily holds the reader spellbound through a riveting love story, heart rendering broken promise, the poignant orphan story, and the universal immigrant saga.
They are chronicles of the present time and of the old, of love and betrayal, of arrogance and humility. They are epiphanies of our lives.
