Nse became pregnant and fled to a distant land.The old man died of a curse in that instant land.
Fortunes spelt well for Nse in her new home. She was delivered with a son and soon met a lover with whom she married and brought up the family happily.
The Novel is well told, the char actors most convincing, and the dramatic incidents make good reading. It is a must for all fiction lovers.
