A REVIEW BY EMMANUEL AGABI
Ezekiel Archibong has provided us with a masterful and delicately delivered story bordering on the rigours faced by a young lad pursuing his mandatory year of service while looking to also win at love; at the same time navigating the attendant problems of living on the mainland and working on the island of Lagos state, Nigeria.
He spares nothing in his vivid description of scenarios and emotions, successfully putting the reader on the scene in what is always a fast paced and consistently exciting unfolding of events. The richness of description is not lost even as we journey under his guidance, through cities in the southern part of Nigeria and the north.
In the latter parts of the story, doctrines of Christian faith stand in the way of what could easily be a fantastic love story forged by two people of sharply contrasting economic backgrounds and experiences of life.
Will Jara and Sifon survive the test of swimming against the tide, while the absence of parental consent wages a war against their beautiful love story?
