A Fascinating Story of Culture Clash in Contemporary Africa... Nsiemboh Ngoske is the most successful member of his family. Intelligent, educated, and poised on the brink of a career promotion, he has blessed his parents and siblings with wealth and comfort formerly beyond their reach. His parents, Elias and Lydia Ngoske, want to do all they can to protect and support their son. Lydia Ngoske believes in the Christian God-that wonderful heavenly Father who has so much to give, and who asks only prayer and belief of His followers. She prays fervently for protection and favor from God, but she knows that won't be enough in a world where personal agendas are advanced through the powers of the occult. She demands that her son be protected by traditional medicine, and enlists Elias Ngoske's brother, Nsanen Jude, to find the most powerful protection available. He recommends Mforme Tata, a renowned traditionalist sought after by the most influential men in the country. He agrees to give the Ngoske family what they want...but inexorable rules govern the world of the occult, and the Ngoskes find that they are given something unexpected, which neither the dark arts nor the Christian God can control. In a compelling, richly atmospheric, beautifully characterized exploration of how belief shapes destiny, God and the Gods draws you into a world of intricate ritual and family love, where one person's mistake may have irreversible consequences.
