Fred McBagonluri’s lyrical novel, A Woman to Marry, is a fascinating and compelling look into one man’s journey across three continents. The saga of Dery and Trish transcends the concept of a love story and carries the reader across a lifetime of struggle and discovery.
Dery, an American of Ghanaian heritage, succeeds academically as an innocent young man at Harvard. As he matures, however, he cannot separate the brutal death of his father in Africa and the deceptions heaped upon him by the women he loves. In his quest for the truth, he meets Trish, and together they share his desperate need to bring his father’s assassins to justice, in a world where justice has rarely prevailed.
Only through renewed love and trust is this tormented protagonist finally able to put to rest a lifetime of anger and pain.
