Labyrinth of Broken Dreams (by Diana Lennox)
Since childhood, many have been told that the right way to live life is to grow up, establish a career, get married, and live happily ever after. While many have lived their lives in this way, and many more aspire to do so, some are left wondering whether this way of life is right for everyone. Serena and Emeka are two young women from Africa whose lives intersect in Canada as they search of a better life than they would have known in their homelands. Their search for a perfect life, perfect love and success implores them to make tough and desperate choices, often acting counter to their own life principles. Their journey confronts the reader with many of the real issues that are prevalent in third-world countries; war, brain drain, famine, sex and the misguided notion that a better life awaits all those who travel to the western world. It is a story about two young women who emigrate from Africa in search of greener pastures abroad; white picket fence, better jobs and ultimately better spouses. The rosy picture they had of the western world immediately changes upon arrival at their destination. The story tackles the reality young women face in pursuit of a sense of belonging and ultimate self-realization. With different backgrounds, the two main characters interact with other supporting characters in tragic, romantic, and positive ways. They say the only thing that man can do to impede his own happiness is to search for it... Join the characters of this book in their tumultuous and enlightening journey, as they uncover the truth about themselves and their dreams.
