Overwhelming Challenges but Success at Last: The Life of My Beautiful and Lovely Mother

This book is a story about my mother, who got pregnant at a relatively young age while she was still a student. It describes the challenges she faced as a young female living in an African society (Togo) with a culture heavily founded on patriarchal norms, values, and traditions. As if this male-dominated society was not enough, my mother also suffered from abandonment from her mother (my grandmother), who was disappointed in her for her untimely pregnancy. Needless to say, that my mother fought and continues to fight countless struggles, all through which she comes out victorious because Christ always strengthens her.
