From Pasta to Pigfoot: Second Helpings
Pasta fanatic Faye Bonsu is back with another adventure in life and love. Hoping to escape from her suddenly complicated life and revive her wilting romance, Faye returns to sunny Ghana for what she hopes will be the time of her life. But life doesn’t always offer second chances.
The Perfect Read!
When pasta fanatic Faye Bonsu’s romantic dreams are left in tatters, she is forced to question her alienation from her African heritage. Leaving her cosy middle-class life in London’s leafy Hampstead to find out what she’s missing, Faye is whisked into the hectic social whirlpool of Ghana where she meets Sonny the pretty-boy womaniser, Edwin her host’s America-crazy boyfriend, Baaba of the enormous hips and sardonic tongue, Stuart the British expat who loves all things (and women) Ghanaian, and the handsome Rocky Asante, a cynical, career-obsessed banker with no time for women…until now.
In a world of food, fun and sun, Faye is forced to discover that no matter how far you travel, you can’t find love until you find yourself.
|From Pasta to Pigfoot is a fun, contemporary, multi-cultural novel set in London and Ghana that explores in a light-hearted way the clash of cultures that has become characteristic of our increasingly multicultural society.|
