A Fatherless Child
by Sekou Nkrumah

A Fatherless Child starts as a love story and then goes deeper into a search for identity and the values that a man can hold onto in this life. This novel is also a narration of the authors long struggle with depression after his return to his homeland, as he tries to adjust to a new environment and cope with the breakup of his first marriage and the departure of his son. Even the birth of his second child, his daughter, does not seem to lift his depressed mood. Then he falls in love with Tara. Can she change his fortunes? Can her strong religious beliefs change the course of his journey through life and beyond?
