Kente Cloth and Apricot Brandy, A Love Story, is the story of a retired couple who fulfill a lifelong dream of traveling to West Africa together. They fall in love with the small fishing village of Elmina, Ghana, its people and the expatriate community and decide to live there. They return home and while eagerly making plans for relocating, the husband dies suddenly. After death, he returns to visit with his wife, give sometimes unwanted advice and even gets involved in his own memorial. The protagonist wife tells the story through a series of memoirs that are engaging, funny, sad, romantic and at times gut-wrenching. Kente Cloth and Apricot Brandy provides a piercing cultureal perspective on love, death, grief and continuing life's journey, which readers will find poignant and stimulating. The unapologetically honest writing will draw readers in for a complete emotional ride.
