Broken Melodies is a novel that examines the social and moral dimensions of sex trafficking in Africa, a problem that has spiraled skyward with the region's economic woes. The story follows Itohan, a teenage girl talked into international prostitution by her mother. It is also a portrait of a socially castrated father, whose moral stance on the matter is strongly uncompromising, but his beliefs only breed ridicule in a society that worships money. Following her arrival in Italy, Itohan is exposed to promiscuous and dirty sex practices riddled with danger and destruction, and finally comes down with HIV. Itohan's sister, Blessing, who turned down their mother's proposition, unfortunately falls into the hands of a false prophet. What happens to Itohan? Her mother? Blessing? And all the money made in Italy? This is a novel tense with emotions that can make you cry and laugh at the same time. Dr. May Ifeoma Nwoye is from Nigeria.
