This story follows the life of Okonkwo, and his family and clan that equally fear and revere him. Eager to rid himself of his father’s reputation as a lazy drunkard, he becomes known as one the greatest warriors alive. Yet a string of events puts his entire life into jeopardy, and one by one, things fall apart.
It’s sci-fi, romance and murder mystery all wrapped into one great story. However, deeper than that, it is a story about what makes us humans.
You don’t need to have lost someone in your life to relate to this book. A Temporary Gift is for everyone, because we are all attached to things in this dunya, and we can forget that they are just temporary loans from Allah.
