ALTAR OF TRADITION
Altar of Tradition is a collection of ten stories told in seamlessly woven prose. They explore a myriad of themes such as Love, loss, sexual abuse, and the shackles of tradition in the face of modernity.
In the story Who Taught Alice?, a young girl’s life takes a traumatic turn after being the victim of sexual assault, first as a toddler, then as a preteen and much later as a young woman in her thirties; In Rain, a community is thrown into turmoil when the rains cease abruptly in the middle of August. The villagers run to rainmakers for help, to a communal hill of prayer, and finally, into the waiting arms of a charlatan pastor; In The New Death, a widow who has to swear before an ancient shrine to prove her innocence in the untimely death of her husband. When her detractors start to fall ill shortly after, people begin to wonder, could it be the justice of the gods, or something more sinister at work?
