River Girl is an African Literary Fiction, which details some of the African myths, and our sometimes not-too-familiar ties with them.
It is a subtle tale bestriding the past and the present. It has one foot in the prehistoric universe.
It deals with a belief that existed when the supernatural world was an extension of daily human existence, and there was no as science we know it.
River Girl, is an exhaustive and expressive account of the life of an upwardly mobile woman, Akwaugo and a seemingly family inheritance which she only discovered in her prime as a result of incessant pains and rejections.
River Girl, explores our readiness to embrace our African culture, accept it and acknowledge it without necessarily conforming to it.
“It took me a long time to write River Girl even though the story had been in my head for years. I had to consider a lot of factors, including my faith, but at the end of the day, it is a good story and every good story deserves to be told”.
Akudo also goes forward to say that River Girl will get every reader thinking and evaluating their lives as well as probably investigating their family lineage.
