Description:

The book Zahra’s song is the tale of Zahra Ahmad an Hausa girl in the late 1900s who became fascinated by the Western culture and her desires to evaluate between her people’s crude ways and the western world.


Zahra’s song is the journal of a traditional Muslim Hausa girl growing up in the Northern part of Nigeria in 1901 to 1921. She was obsessed with Western education and civilization at a time fellow  villagers still detested any form of western culture and civilization; blaming the strange men with different skin color who had spoiled their land with their strange customs.

 

Are our lives bound by Fate, or do we have the power to choose our Destiny? Karin Ezeakor addresses this question through the moving story of Zahra, a young Moslem girl growing up in Nigeria. Zahra dreams of faraway places and of an education generally unavailable to a girl of her station. We follow Zahra through her adventures and her pursuit of education; we experience with her the love, loss, joys, and triumphs along the way. Karin Ezeakor paints a loving portrait of a girl growing up, set against the vivid backdrop of rural and urban Africa in the early part of the twentieth century. This is a gripping and sensitive tale—a melody you’ll keep hearing long after the final note of Zahra’s Song
