We are excited to share His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie with you. This is a compelling book about women and marriage in Ghana and we hope that you will become as enthralled with Afi’s story as we were.
His Only Wife is set in Ghana, so we’ve included these adorable Cheetah Socks from Friday Sock Co in Calgary, AB. Cheetahs live in Ghana and the mismatched socks represent Afi, living in 2 different worlds. Cheetahs have amazing camouflage to fit in, but can stand out when they want to, characteristics Afi has as well.
Afi loves to cook, exemplified by the Plantain Chips from My Chopchop African Groceries in Toronto, ON. Plantains are native to Ghana and likely one of the ingredients she uses in her wonderful dishes.
Another native plant in Ghana are cocoa trees, which is why you’ll find Cavalla French Roast Brewed Cocoa from Crio Bru in Calgary, AB. This unique drink is like brewing hot chocolate and coffee all at once! The Cavalla beans are from the Ivory Coast of Africa.
A big part of Afi’s life is going to the market and shopping for the foods she likes, so we’ve provided you with your very own upcycled Cotton Produce Bag from The Market Bags in Kelowna, BC.
You will also find a themed bookmark, an enlightening author interview, and a signed book plate!
