Summary
"Bhindy: her African dream is largely based on the true life story of the author herself. There is a compelling reason for every path taken by every person in the journey of life. Bhindy (full anme Bhindauko), is an African spiced (twuzukuru) folklore, inspired and narrated in an African storytelling style with inescapable originality and humor. This is a story of more than just survival and self determination. Bhindy struggles through the vicissitudes of life piling up on her until she pauses and says, "Hey...this is not what I ordered!" She must put in insurmountable effort in every step she takes to prove her worth, determination, perseverance, morality and sometimes innocence. She proves that this journey is not su much about what happens to her but how she responds to these events--good and bad. She uses two simple strategies that unravel in the book. Like a caterpiller wrapped in an ugly dark cocoon, she wriggles herself out of political, social and economic injustice in Zimbabwe into a free world to become a colorful butterfly. Two months before her fiftieth birthday on one summer midday at the Harare International Airport in Zimbabwe, she makes a move on the global compass. With her entire belongings represented in two medium sized suitcases, a small hand luggage and leather handbag, she moves to America without anybody's knowledge. Unexpected events and drama unfold as she attempts to find her way with the demands of this new environment. What proceeds is the pursuit of her new dream."--Provided by publisher
