That’s how all perfect fairy love stories start but this is hardly a perfect fairy love story.
Lemaiyan Masikonte marries Naila in a beautiful traditional ceremony.
Their marriage holds immeasurable anguish and torment, a rainbow baby and a series of miscarriages in a society that is harsh to women with empty wombs but quick to advice men to take on other wives to fill up their empty nests.
This story is about a family that is far from perfect.
It is a story of two daughters, a story of a wife who has had more than enough, a story of a broken husband and a sad twist of a not so secret ghost from his marriage’s past that eventually shatters their world to smithereens without their knowledge.
