#GhanaMustGo by #TaiyeSelasi
Kweku Sai is a respected Ghanaian surgeon living in the United States with his Nigerian wife, Folasadé and their four children; Olu, the twins Taiwo and Kehinde, and Sadie. A year after a wrongful dismissal hidden from his family, he drives off and abandons his family. Unable to cope with the four kids on her own, Folasadé sends the twins to her half-brother in Nigeria where their experience leaves them bruised. The family ends up scattered around the world, each one of his children brilliant and successful yet carrying their wounds in their own different ways. All of them have been altered by the abandonment of Kweku, his absence and the broken bonds among them.

The death of their father brings them together after a period of frail contact. They reunite with their mother in Ghana where the awkwardness and tension must reach a point of breaking. After years of floating about without a grounding force, can this reunion stitch the wounds and sew back the pieces of the Sai family?

A lot of tears are shed in this book. Selasi penetrates the effects that immigration has on families – the separations and the inability to firmly place one’s roots in a particular place. Our family experiences and the love ties we break and refasten shape us in different ways and play a role in how we absorb love from the world and how we pour it out to others. Although handsomely written, it is easy to lose your way along the way as she constantly shifts the camera to different scenes and characters, in some parts to different periods. To some it could be an undesirable method but to others like myself, it is indeed an impressive style of writing that toys with the plot structure and development of characters.

I finally finished reading #GhanaMustGo ! All of the 709 days of 2018!! I must confess that as much as I found it so difficult to read in the beginning,I finally got the hang of it and found it ever so interesting past page 100!! I learnt so much about family and secrets and crises and how all that can affect one’s life and now I know better!! I’m still not for the author’s writing style but I did enjoy the storyline... It’s deep! I cried a bit and it made me think about life, and family and everything...In the end, it was worth struggling with! All of the 709 days of my life!!
