The Joys of Motherhood (Buchi Emecheta)

"Her love and duty for her children were like her chain of slavery."

"Her love and duty for her children were like her chain of slavery."

Nigeria / 1979

This book is a classic. It is absolutely on my required reading list. Emecheta writes beautifully and matter-of-factly about the often-unfortunate role of women in Nigerian society at the time. Her voice is so strong and it is very hard to put her books down. This is a must read!
