We send our eternal gratitude to reader extraordinaire Reese Witherspoon for seeing the brilliant storytelling and empowering joy of these two novels and helping us share them with the world!
Here’s a little more about each book so you can buy your copies and read along with Reese:
His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie
This witty and moving debut novel introduces us to Afi Tekple, a brave young woman traversing the minefield of modern life with its taboos and injustices in Ghana. Marrying Eli, a man she has never met, could change everything for her and her family. But Afi’s new life has strings attached.
“I love this book so much. I turned the pages so fast . . . It’s all about the search for independence and being true to yourself and who you really are,” Reese said when announcing her selection.
