While it was interesting to get some perspective on this country's struggles with poverty, there was an excessive amount of repetition and needless detail always letting us know if something was in the north, south, east or west, for example, even the walls of a building. Nyashadzashe Chikumbu. A Cowrie Of Hope traces the struggles of a mother fighting the harsh , unforgiving , selfish male dominated society to ensure the triumph of her daughter.

In A Cowrie of Hope, Sinyangwe does well in capturing the emotions tied to the ordeal of a single mother, and a dutiful child; the two who understand each other even with little words. I truly enjoyed reading this short novel, in the first place because of the beautiful language, mainly in the descriptions and in the dialogues.
I marveled at the nicely translated dialogues from local language to English, reflecting the dignity and respectful social ways of Zambian people. When the main character got to Lusaka at the market, the story line pushed me to continue reading until the end. I expected a happy ending, but was not really sure of it.
Nice book. What a book! Poor, destitute, widowed: all she has left is hope. This book explores the economic turmoil of Zambia in the 90s, and the effect of that economic crisis on the day to day lives of the poor. Whilst this book showcases the harsh realities of those times, it ends on a note of hope.
Well worth a read, would definitely recommend. K's Bognoter. The unconditional and sacrificial love of a mother is what this book is all about. Mothers have hearts of gold and will do anything to ensure that their children get everything they never had in life,especially a good education. In Africa education is often seen as a luxury. The protagonist tackles every obstacle in her way to ensure that her daughter gets the education she knows she deserves. I enjoyed this story about a mother fighting for her daughter's future.
Through the book, I learned a lot about Zambia in the s. Thoughts coming shortly. A very simple plot with quite simple characters. Had beautiful descriptions of the surroundings that were very emotionally charged and reflective.
If there is, that woman must be stupid. Nasula, only imbeciels and sweet idots have a life whose happiness does not hang in the balance. A true woman with such a life does not exist. Stop being foolish. Just look your troubles in the eye and atop longing for your own death.
Gossip was what they broke their fast with, lunched and suppered on. Themes of motherhood, poverty, friendship, education, perserverance, hope, determination, good vs evil and bribery. An absolutely heartwarming ending to a what starts off as a tale of woes and misery. A widow struggles to raise money to send her young daughter to the school.
Education is no more free, AIDS is rampant and she is losing family members to the disease, there is no help from her husband side of the family either to support in times of utter despair. Poverty is a tangible entity for many and its no different in this novella. Indeed there is a cowrie of hope at the end, an optimistic end to the story that went downhill pretty fast and my heart went out for Nasula, the mother.
But through grit and perseverance, she managed to achieve what she set out to do. A reminder that the s, which seemed like an era of easy prosperity to many people in the West, were terrible years in other places. And a good reminder that sometimes short books with hard-driving problem-based plots can be incredibly absorbing reads.
Heather Phillips. I really enjoyed this story as a way to get to know Zambia before I visited it for the first time. This is the story of the lengths a mother will go to better the life of her child, and the incredible things she may have to overcome.
Not only was it a story of great character, but the scenes describing the city and country made me feel like I got to know a bit about the country, and how the place can impact the people. Although a bit like an allegory, which in parts felt a bit make believe, overall this was a great story that I thought of for months after. I like the unique style of this book. It does not read like typical European fiction: it isn't, and the writer's style helps us to taste a very different world.
I found his descriptions take the reader to the places, both rural and urban, and his use of metaphor, simile and exaggeration contribute to the "fairy" tale quality of the story. There must be a thesis waiting to be written about the significance of beans in literature! For me this book is an important contribution to African Literature. Namubiru Jane. Binwell Sinyangwe Hope Nasula and Sula, mother and daughter Belita Bowa, an illeterate orphan, poor and a widow strives to educate her only daughter Sula her only ray of Hope in life to get her out of poverty and suffering.
The book captures the story of a really strong woman who recognizes the importance of girl education and would go through any hardships to provide that to her daughter.
It was a nice and simple story.
