9780985362508: Montserrado Stories

Human history discloses the anger and despair that too often mar the lives of people. This is Lewis’ second collection of short stories, beautifully illustrating real life challenges, great story line, and a sweet voice sure to woo readers. The stories provide a view into Liberia society one cannot get from the headlines, and written with perfect cultural rhythm that will bring readers to Liberia with the characters. Four Novellas make up this exciting book: In GOOD FATHER, a cassava farmer, hard-pressed to provide for his family, questions his teen son’s dream of becoming a football star. His encounter with an American coach and a heart-to-heart conversation with his old father ensues the love a father feels for his son. In SWEET MOTHER, the fate of two strangers collides, Sundaymah Boye, a rape victim of the war with no desire for improving her life and Nick Anderson, a thirty-something year old African-American who is losing his life to cancer; what each has to offer is priceless. A vital moral lesson prevades in FIRESTONE, when a 15-year-old boy caught breaking and entering is taken to the path of opportunity rather than prison. In BELIEVE, divine power unites with human effort as Youwah Saytue’s faith is tested by the threat of a lethal African black mamba.
