This is reflected in this short-story anthology.

From the origins of life - and its antithesis, death - through tradition as opposed to modernity, through depredations and ravages of war, HIV/Aids, marital infidelity, school experiences, to the importance of resilience, this anthology traverses a broad literary territory both in terms of themes and styles.

Here you will find the voices of women from different parts of Uganda joined together by a commonality of concerns. Some of the twelve works published in this anthology have won prestigious literary awards and prizes in their individual capacities or have made it to the shortlist, making this collection the best of the best. The patience, sensitivity for detail, and total absence of melodrama even in the most tragic of pieces, signal a watershed in Ugandas literature and give the reader a glimpse of greater things to come.
