Diane Ninsiima Reviews Acacia by Tendai Machingaidze

AcaciaVerdict: carrot

The story and its characters are captivating. Acacia’s mother is portrayed as a very successful and hard working woman. Her grandmother, although not very educated is a fountain of wisdom which Acacia appreciates later on in life. These two women shape Acacia into a very strong person, but they still know when to pull back and let Acacia venture out to find herself and her own happiness. A very likeable character, one will cry with her when she’s hurting and jubilate with her when she finds happiness or success.
