From the Inside Flap

Three women face a journey that will change their lives forever. Three women who almost have it all: Norah thinks she has made it when she qualifies as a lawyer in Paris; Fanta works her way into a prestigious teaching job in her home city; Khady runs a café with her loving husband - now all she wants is a child. But family ties, broken or reasserted, will force each woman to face a journey from France to Africa or from Africa to France that will take the future out of their hands and change their lives forever. Domineering fathers, weak lovers, racist bureaucracies, the perilous road of the refugee - they will need all their courage and inner strength if they are to overcome. Winner of the Prix Goncourt, France's most prestigious literary prize, Three Strong Women is a novel of pure impact, full of sharp psychological insight and subtle, hallucinatory twists of the mind.
