1 review for Beyond the Trial

  1. Tom Fowler

    Chigozie Mbadugha has woven three stories, each featuring a different African woman dealing with challenges, into a consistent narrative. The stories are uplifting,
    highlighting the resilience and character of the women. The women face their obstacles with courage and show their strength. The characters and their challenges are
    different, but each woman is well-defined and rises to the occasion in her own way. The book highlights a culture that is probably foreign to many readers. It’s good to
    read something that exposes you to a different part of the world, and to stories, you may have otherwise missed. Beyond the Trial is such a book. I think the first story
    (featuring the character Funke) is the most satisfying. Each starts a little slowly but tests the women through the hardships they encounter. The journeys are arduous but
    the readers will find them, and this book, rewarding.
