It tells the tragic story of Nnu-Ego, whose life centres on her children through whom she gains the respect of her tribal community. But traditional values begin to shift with increasing colonial influence, pushing Ego to challenge accepted notions of “mother”, “wife”, and “woman”. Through Nnu Ego’s journey, Emecheta forces her readers to consider the dilemmas associated with adopting new ideas and practices against the inclination to cleave to tradition.
