Emerging from a crippling divorce settlement that threatens to strip him even of his dignity, the author takes us on a voyage of discovery into a world of enlightenment and hope. Set up to show a young French tourist around town, he agrees reluctantly – until he meets the tourist. From then on, it’s uphill all the way… Against a backdrop of European travel and laced with a wealth of experience, the author opens himself to the possibility of rekindled hope. Taking the first hesitant steps towards a whole relationship, we emerge with him into the uniqueness of life in France, and one French person in particular… Meet the family. Parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, all play their part in this revealing autobiographical novel. From the demise of a bad relationship to the birth of a good one, little is excluded from the author’s perceptive tale. Life beyond city limits has never been this interesting: in a journey both physical and spiritual, love across cultural barriers is brought squarely into the realm of everyday experience and given the treatment it deserves.

The relative lack of information on determinants of disease, disability, and death at major stages of a woman's lifespan and the excess morbidity and premature mortality that this engenders has important adverse social and economic ramifications, not only for Sub-Saharan Africa, but also for other regions of the world as well. Women bear much of the weight of world production in both traditional and modern industries. In Sub-Saharan Africa, for example, women contribute approximately 60 to 80 percent of agricultural labor. Worldwide, it is estimated that women are the sole supporters in 18 to 30 percent of all families, and that their financial contribution in the remainder of families is substantial and often crucial. This book provides a solid documentary base that can be used to develop an agenda to guide research and health policy formulation on female health--both for Sub-Saharan Africa and for other regions of the developing world. This book could also help facilitate ongoing, collaboration between African researchers on women's health and their U.S. colleagues. Chapters cover such topics as demographics, nutritional status, obstetric morbidity and mortality, mental health problems, and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.
