REVIEWER: Mwalimu Jeffkass. Mariama Ba states the plight of women who have fallen in the bottomless pit of irresponsible husbands. Marrying many wives to some cultures is not a crime but it does not mean that the first wife be mistreated in favor of the newly married wife. She portrays Modou as irresponsible man who even go as far as breaking the family rules and cares not for the good will of his family. Daba the daughter mourns in several ways since she will luck her father's love and at the same time, there is nothing left by her father to keep her going not only un paid debts that the father has left them with. Sincerely men of Africa need to change and learn to be responsible for their families.
