Afi's future doesn't seem to hold much excitement. Until, that is, she is offered a life-changing opportunity – a proposal of marriage from the wealthy family of elikem ganyo. She barely knows elikem, but that seems a small price to pay for a marriage that could offer her family financial security, as well as the key to the glitzy city lifestyle she's always wanted. But when AFI arrives in Accra, she realizes that her fairy-tale ending might not be all that she'd hoped for. Now she must balance the often conflicting roles of wife, daughter, niece and sister-in-law, without losing sight of herself. Bursting with warmth and humour, his only wife is a witty, smart and moving comedy-of-manners about the search for independence, and the rules that might have to be broken along the way. 9780861541454
