The Hot Chalice by Hamisi Wawire
Nuria Ranking: #83 in Kenya Fiction
Should we let our children into our marriage squabbles? Does it help or worsen the already worse situation? Does it mould them into responsible parents and patriotic citizens? Must we doubt each other in marriage?
In this lovely but tragic story, Injendi’s true love to his family – wife and daughter comes to an abrupt end when his wife’s doubts lead to Nekesa’s killing. A rosy union turns once into a bed of thorns that dates back to Nawusino’s early orientation to love and marriage. Nandako has to step in strongly to make the unimagined happen.
