At the tail end of last month I wrote a post looking back at 2012 and to a certain extent looking forward to 2013.

I like this story. I like the way it and the world it is set in are taking shape around and alongside one another. I like the simplicity of the story and the humanity in it. It is the story of a woman who is a successful shop owner, a woman with a large extended family including a husband and children, who had a daughter when she was a teenager, before she got married, and gave this daughter away to the child’s father, a wealthy married man with a barren wife who wanted a child to inherit his legacy. She leaves her successful business in her husband’s hands and sets off with her eldest son in search of that daughter.
