    Call for a Sequel5

    John Powell From the beginning, the author's love and understanding of Ghanaian Culture is apparent. So much so that I feel this story is fact intermingled with fiction.
    We follow the life and career of Kwame Mainu, born in 1957, four days before Ghana gained its independence. In spite of many changes in his family's circumstances, leaving them in relative poverty, his energy, intelligence and persistence enabled him to survive and progress.
    We learn much of the problems, both political and economic of the new Ghana. Through this, Kwame struggles to maintain his early principles.
    The relationships between characters are warmly and skilfully portrayed.
    I found the engineering technical details difficult, but my curiosity to follow this intriguing story kept me reading.
    To readers with little knowledge of Ghana, this book will stimulate their interest in this fascinating country.
    I feel many readers, like myself, will hope there is to be a sequel to this informative and skilfully written story.
