Doesn’t it look lovely? I LOVE the cover. The colors and the fading overlays was done perfectly. It’s gorgeous and (I’m betting) representative of the book.
I have just started reading so I’m not too far in to share much, but it is the first book in a trilogy series and written by a Cameroonian author.
Young tribal girl, Yefon Labam, knows she’s different. During the 1950’s, in her Central African village, women are uneducated and are expected to either work on a farm or be one of many wives, but Yefon dares for more—she wants to learn how to read, even if looking at a book could mean her death. Although everyone thinks she’s an abomination, including her mother and sisters, her father knows she’s destined for greater things. When he is murdered, Yefon clings to the gift he gave her for inspiration—a red necklace. She soon comes to realize that the necklace is no ordinary ornament, but a talisman crafted by the spirits. Yefon walks a dangerous path that could lead to her freedom…or her death.

Look for the review for Wild Iris Ridge next week – and today for Becoming Lady Lockwood!
What do you think you’ll read next?
I might get a head start on my next tour book, Life Interrupted, or Elizabeth McKenna’s Venice in the Moonlight, but I am dying to start in on Storms of Lazarus. Find out next week which one I choose!
How about you? Have you read or TBRed any of these? What are you reading this week? Please leave a comment with either the link to your own WWW Wednesday post, or share your answers in the comments here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! 🙂
