Afi is a seamstress who’s offered a proposal of marriage she can’t refuse. What she doesn’t know is that her new husband, Eli, is in love with another woman—one his wealthy family disapproves of. As her new status opens more doors, Afi begins to see a life of independence. At its heart, the novel is a story of a young woman coming into her own and finding her voice.
