The Village Boy
by Oloya Uma

Although Mark finds a great job working as a servant to the wife of a government minister, he and Rachel cant seem to escape the classism and corruption so common in a third-world country. Marks beautiful mistress, Liza, shows him the benefits of being a member of the upper class and the terror of losing that status.

The Village Boy takes the reader into a world where opportunism quickly takes the place of love, a world where dishonesty, bribery, and sex are a means of survival.
