9780435912086: The Purple Violet of Oshaantu (Heinemann African Writers Series)

This compelling novel, set in the village community of Oshaantu in rural Namibia, draws on several interconnected stories to offer a compelling picture of the plight of African women.

For Kauna, marriage is nothing more than loveless entrapment, and she defies convention by making no secret of her suffering. When her abusive husband is found dead, the villagers are quick to suspect her. Related from the point of view of her best friend, Kauna's story reveals the value of friendship between women of all kinds.
