Janet is married to Morris, who is an only son. It is customary practice among their ethnic group to prohibit women from inheriting property. A man who dies without siring a male heir therefore forfeits his property to male relatives (brothers and uncles).

Janet must therefore bear a male child for Morris. Clara,a feisty and extroverted woman, is Morris’s mother. She is also interested in the male blood line of the family avoiding extinction after her son. Janet’s first, second and third children are all girls.
She is depressed and deems herself an “inadequate woman.”Clara marries a young girl named Sylvia for Morris without his knowledge. Their culture permits this, by the way. Morris, who still loves Janet, rejects the marriage when he learns about it.
Janet’s fourth child is yet another girl. Morris reconsiders his position about Sylvia, accepts her as his second wife, carries on a discreet relationship with her and she bears him a son, but this event occurs after Morris had promised Janet a trip to the USA for sex selection treatment. They travel to America where Janet receives treatment. During the ensuing pregnancy, her fifth, Janet finds out that Morris has fathered a child with Sylvia. She is hurt and suicidal. They reconcile and she goes on to bear him that elusive son. Morris now has a polygamous and bifurcated family, and a new challenge in uniting it under one roof.

Aisha, tall and beautiful, is abducted from her secondary boarding school, along with hundreds of her school mates, by terrorists. They are taken to a camp of the terrorists deep inside a forest, where they are married off to fighters of the terrorist organization and made to live under a cruel order. Ahmad, Aisha’s fiancé and an ex soldier, vows to rescue her. He fakes his way into joining the terrorist organization so he could use his covert presence there to rescue her. The plan runs into serious trouble and Ahmad is captured.  Aisha gets into trouble as well from a framed up adultery charge. Both are sentenced to die and are awaiting execution when dramatic events suddenly occur to redirect the hopeless situation.

(2021)

LITERARY REVIEW

JENNIE MORE

 

Pressure To Mutilate by Matthew Uzukwu is an intense, layered, and suspenseful story.
While I could empathize with Osak over his concerns for his daughter's health and
understanding the importance of the circumcision ritual fundamental to his beliefs and
culture, as a woman I empathized deeply with Ingrid and Felicia. An act is imposed on this
young girl, unable to speak or decide for herself, an action that stifles her autonomy
before she has even acquired any independence. Through Osak's neglect to inform his
wife about the dilemma, he robs Ingrid of the opportunity to protect and speak on behalf
of her daughter, thus stifling Ingrid's freedom as well. The dialogue between the
characters was realistic and natural, as the opinions shared by the characters were
diverse. This is a complex story that left me in deep thought. The plot is brilliant, bold, and
complex, stirring up critical and diverse debates in contemporary society."

Brave Love is a work of fiction in the action, suspense, and romance subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Matthew Uzukwu. In this tense and exciting novel filled with danger, disaster, and the power of undying love, we meet the central couple, Aisha and Ahmad. Aisha is a happy, contented student who is betrothed to ex-soldier Ahmad, but their dreams of a happy life together are dashed when Aisha and many other schoolmates are abducted by a terrorist organization. It’s up to Ahmad to risk it all and disguise himself as a member of ZOBBO in order to infiltrate and rescue his beloved.This is easily one of the most unique love stories that I’ve read all year, not least because of the interesting setting and cultural elements of the tale, but also because it highlights real-world issues that are not that far away from the world of fiction. Author Matthew Uzukwu presents characters who are emotionally realistic, reacting in brave but highly credible ways to the dangers around them. It was refreshing to follow two very good-natured souls through their journey to try to be reunited, and the plot takes plenty of twists and turns as they both find themselves risking their lives to escape from terrorist tyranny and find harmony together once again. Overall, I would certainly recommend Brave Love for romance readers looking for something truly different from the boring, standard love stories, and an action-packed novel with characters who will settle deep into your heart.
