Title:  Taste of the West 

Author:  Dr. Oliver Akamnonu

Publisher:  XLibris

Reviewer:   Nan Mahon AAA Member

Nadike is the much loved, but unspoiled, only son of a well-off farmer in a small village in the heart of Africa. The struggle in this quiet, simple world is between the old ways and the new teachings of the missionaries who come to bring change and to educate the children of the village.

When Nadike is chosen to become an official in the church, his father is torn between letting his only son go or to keep him close in the old ways. It is a sacrifice his father will make out of love and pride.

Nadike leaves his village and gets an astonishing taste of the West. His choice is to return to Africa to be near the people he loves, but he can never be theirs again.

This is a sweet story told in a uncomplicated fashion by a writer who understands his subject. It is full of love and joy, family, and the ever present change often forced on others for what is perceived as their own good.

The title of this book does not do it justice. But if you are tired of dark tales of violence and hate, this is a refreshing, heart lifting story.
