Adapted from the blog series ‘ATS’ on www.Adventuresfrom.com, The Daughters of Swallows follows the lives of three women in contemporary Ghana.
Everything changed for Afosua the night before her wedding when Rafiq – her fiancé’s brother – committed the ultimate violation. She emerges from tragedy an unbroken, but fractured woman. With her fairy-tale life ripped so violently away from her, she shields herself in her work, building up walls, determined never to be harmed by a man again. However, when Afosua makes an accidental discovery at work, she will find her life in peril once more.
Naa Akweley Blankson is stuck at the foot of her staircase once more. Her marriage to her powerful preacher husband has turned out to be the very opposite of what it promised to be.
After being bartered into a marriage to save her father from crushing debt, Annette Prah is forced into a union with a man three times her age. Meek and unassuming, she accepts that her life will be nothing more than what her septuagenarian husband maps out for her – until a chance encounter in her seamstress’s shop changes everything.
Friendship is what brings these women together, but their shared strength in overcoming their trials binds them forever. These are the daughters of swallows, who learn to adapt and fashion new lives, no matter where Nature’s winds may send them.₵50.00₵50.00Quick View
Agyapomaa Agyemang is a woman on the cusp of success. With a thriving business in Ibadan and an adoring fiancé by her side, she’s living the fairytale she had always hoped for. Her charmed life seems certain and sure, until her fantasy is taken apart brick-by-brick by hatred and betrayal.
Wounded, she returns to Kumasi to heal and seek solace in her family. What Pomaa finds instead is wahala: phantoms from her past, a madman chasing her through the streets, and the steadfast adulation of Akoto – a shoemaker whose affections leave her confounded. Suddenly, she’s confronted with a new set of choices she never counted on.
Resolving her circumstances might be easier if not for her best friend, Frema, and her constant reminders about ‘Ashanti Aristocrat’ codes and expectations. Pomaa must decide if she’s bold enough to reciprocate Akoto’s affection, or remain content to settle with what is familiar and acceptable. Can Pomaa still choose her prince, knowing that he’s a pauper?

The #1 “New York Times”-bestselling author of “Survivor in Death” has Lieutenant Eve Dallas walking a tightrope between her professional duties and her private demons.
Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She’s got no problem dealing with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges thirty-seven stories and gives new meaning to the term “sidewalk Santa.” But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it’s all Eve can do to hold it together. Instantly, she’s thrown back into the past, to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized girl-trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front of her, smiling.
Trudy claims she just wanted to see how Eve was doing. But Eve’s husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise-and his suspicions prove correct when Trudy arrives at his office, demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details of his wife’s childhood a secret. Barely restraining himself, Roarke shows her the door-and makes it clear that she’d be wise to get out of New York and never bother him or his wife again.
But just a few days later, Trudy’s found on the floor of her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood. A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the sake of Trudy’s bereaved son. Unfortunately, Eve is not the only one to have suffered at this woman’s hands, and she and Roarke will follow a circuitous, dangerous path to find out who turned this victimizer into a victim.₵55.00₵55.00Quick View
