Product Description

"The Forest Dames is a pulsating story about the devastating effects of war, in which AdaOkere Agbasimalo dwells on the sordid consequences of civil war on humanity and the tortuous effort to achieve normalcy. It features Deze, a young girl with a keen mind, who lived with her parents in a typical African setting and felt the pain of war. As an adulthood, the memories remain intact, haunting her." The Forest Dames is a creative non-fiction about mothers and daughters during the Biafran war. The central force of the narrative is the suffering of women and children, and the desire of the characters to uphold their dignity as women. Girls were routinely captured to become bad mates for soldiers. A group of women, including the narrator’s mother, decided to guard against this. This book is a nonjudgmental and balanced story which the narrator’s alter ego now tells in flashback
