Recommended book The First Woman Of Waby Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi


✤ Recommended book The First Woman by Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi

Winner of the Jhalak Prize, 2021



As Kirabo enters her teens, questions begin to gnaw at her – questions which the adults in her life will do anything to ignore. Where is the mother she has never known? And why would she choose to leave her daughter behind? Inquisitive, headstrong, and unwilling to take no for an answer, Kirabo sets out to find the truth for herself.


Her search will take her away from the safety of her prosperous Ugandan family, plunging her into a very different world of magic, tradition, and the haunting legend of 'The First Woman'
