SUMMARY Association of Foreign Spouses

SUMMARY Association of Foreign Spouses FREE DOWNLOAD Association of Foreign Spouses 107 REVIEW ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ï Marilyn Heward Mills Marriage to a handsome Ghanaian architect has brought Eva far from the uiet English countryside Alf. Ghana provides a vivid if sometimes chaotic setting for this second novel by Marilyn Heward Mills The main characters are four women who are transplanted from Europe Three are married and two are raising children The fourth has children but isn t married and fights an ongoing battle with the children s fatherThe women view themselves as living in an alien society To some extent and based on the difference in their lifestyles they are outcasts and so they form a bond of friendship They support and cheer each other on during difficult times and are family than friends Among their challenges are episodes of infidelity and spousal abuse All this while coping with the dangers that come with social upheavalEva Dahlia Margrit and Yelena are diverse in character and strong in their individual ways Each woman s experience is touching and relatableI liked the fact that the author describes life in Ghana so well that I feel I have lived through the dry season walked through the streets and seen the empty shelves in stores the dirt and the cloying stench of clogged drains heard the irritating mosuitoes the rain coming down in sheets and tasted the variety of foodI felt there was some stereotyping The male figures in the story seem either good or bad so when Eva s husband falls from grace I couldn t fathom how their problems might end Vincent another character has no redeeming ualities He is abusive cruel and dishonest someone you love to hate His wife Dahlia is a perfect doormat and though she thinks he has turned into a monster there is nothing from her perspective to indicate that he was ever a better personWithin the story the rich are stereotyped as plunderers and in some instances are dragged away and shot after accusations of profiteering and treason by the authorities Instead of being simply terrifying the coups strike me as irrational and disorganized which I suspect is the writer s intention Each time a coup is declared it isn t long before the current leader is deposed and another takes his placeI came away from the story with the idea that Ghanaian society is in tatters as a result of corruption the divide between rich and poor insurmountable The men are drawn as dishonest and irresponsible and the women accommodatingIn some respects this novel reminds me of the White Woman on the Green Bicycle in that the main character is an expatriate who is fed up with her adopted home Like that character Eva is aware of the plight of the locals through her employees and the unavoidable scenes that greet her on the street She has a conscience but knows she can t help everybody However she is detached from the suffering around her The high fence and secure gate reinforces that separation from realityThe social unrest is also present in the White Woman on the Green Bicycle so too is the reality that the poor live a far different life from expatriate who has relocated to a foreign landI laughed and cried over the situations that blindsided the group of friends but at times I was unable to suspend my disbelief The pacing of the story is good the prose fluid and the ending satisfactoryThe Association of Foreign Spouses is well written and worth the time it took me to read However in comparison to Heward Mills first novel Cloth Girl the book fell below my expectationsSee full review at Stalins verhinderter Erstschlag
