Amma Darko

Amma Darko was born in Tamale, Ghana, and grew up in Accra. After living in Germany, she returned to Ghana. Beyond the Horizon, first published in German, is Amma Darko's first novel.

Beyond the Horizon

". . . gracefully written . . . a unique tale by turns revealing, stupefying, and bitterly comic."
--Kirkus Reviews

Gazing at her naked body in the mirror, Mara reflects on her transformation from naive Ghanaian village girl into a prostitute in a German brothel. Mara has been deceived by her husband, Akobi, into coming to Europe to find a "paradise," but, as the truth about Akobi and her new life unfolds, she realizes she is trapped. The expectations of her family in Africa force her to remain, living a lie. As she fights back, she finds the revenge she takes can in no way compensate for her loss of innocence and lifetime exile from her homeland.

This is a natural storyteller's compelling and sobering account of the ruthless exploitation of women in Africa and Europe.
