Summary "A dead baby and bloodstained clothes are discovered near a small village. Everyone is ready to comment on the likely story behind the abandoned infant. The men have one opinion, the women another. As the story rapidly unfolds, it becomes clear that seven different women played their part in the drama. All of them are caught in a web of superstition, ignorance, greed and corruption."--BOOK JACKET. "Amma Darko's new novel is a dramatic story of exploitation in modern Ghana."--BOOK JACKET.
