Broken Dreams

by Jideofor Adibe
£6.99   paperback  Adonis & Abbey Publishers LTD> (2003)

Broken Dreams by Jideofor Adibe Amid the smouldering tension of impending civil war, Pete Ogwu an his wife Teresa are forced to flee their home in western Nigeria, leaving behind a baby son and their housemaid. Adpoted by Madam Cash, Femi grows upto be an idealistic socialist writer, convinced that he is destined for greatness. Bimbo, the result of a fetish union between Ogso and a local madwoman, endures domestic brutality and prostitution, eventually seeking solace and redemption in a local religious group. Ogwo, by now a famous televangelist and founder of the fastest-growing Pentacostal church in Nigeria wants to help but ends up being involved.
 
Set against a backdrop of religious fervour, the intertwined lives of these family members are inexorably drawn to a shoking conclusion.
