A fascinating depiction of marriage complete with loss, grief, betrayal, cultural influences: woman marries man who is impotent, culture demands eldest, most valued son conceives an heir: polygamy is norm: son's mother procures another wife for son to impregnate: son eventually kills 2nd wife: son schemes with his younger brother to impregnate wife: she bears 3 children: one dies of SIDS, the second of sickle cell inherited blood disorder: 3rd lives with sickle cell but mother believes daughter had died of sickle cell after separating from husband.
Well written, pace of plot, impotency, death of 2nd wife introduced within believable context.
