Sinopse

It is a chilling story of a brilliant school-loving boy, Fola, whose birth holds a great promise that will mark a new epoch in his family and the entire community. However, this promise is entwined with a gale of thorny circumstances. His early education was abruptly terminated as a result of his father’s unexpected death.Hence he was brought to a foster uncle under a compelling situation at Anjorin, a farm settlement. Interestingly, in the midst of this largely obfuscating traditional society and farmstead, the fire of his educational ambition gradually began to gather steam again. His obsession for Western education will spark off a rift between him and his foster uncle in the rustic rural society where farm is a preferred profession to Western education and white collar jobs in the city; where modernity is both loathed and desired. Fola’s life desire is to become a practicing medical doctor of national significance. How can he weather the storm when his uncle has turned out to be his worst enemy? Amidst costly denials, deprivations, sacrifices; grim loneliness, intricate snares and dangers, the novel is an enthralling depiction of inevitable antagonism between reality and dream, as well as the triumph of the resilience of human spirit. The book is also a revelation of great mysteries that are beyond human understanding.
