His Only Wife, Peace Adzo Medie

You can tell from the title alone that this book is a doozy. Billed as a Crazy Rich Asians type of tale set in Ghana, it follows the life of Afi Tekple, a seamstress whose mother has convinced her to marry a man she doesn’t know. But Afi does know him and their relationship is designed to keep him from a woman they’ve dubbed inappropriate. Living in a big city away from her small village and serving a man who seems disinterested has proven quite the challenge for Afi who has to decide if the financial benefit is worth the trouble.

His Only Wife is set in Ghana, but if you’re in the United States, you can find this title at this bookstore in Georgia, Brave and Kind Books. Check it out here.
