This book deals with love, marriage/family, and witchcraft issues but its central question remains that of whether love without understanding is love. Tackling love from much broader and interdisciplinary angles than just the love-making that most love stories usually focus on, it advances the duo of love and understanding as the foundation of any successful marriage/family. Although Momany is blessed with often easily finding this rare duo, the tensions of belonging in Cameroon have been constant and persistent challenges. The book uniquely raises and brings new and ground-breaking perspectives on its subject-matters, obviously leaving many social scientists with much to do further research on.

Momany seems to have liked her especially as she was not part of

relationship; the experts have that over to them. But one thing I know very well is that Momany found her comportment to be too bold of “little” Anna and it certainly stroke the right note in his soul: 46 an unmistakable indication of someone who knew exactly what she wanted and was not afraid to go for it; just the perfect woman for him as a wife, he told himself, and the AAD instantly switched on, shutting out all the myriad of attention-seekers (including even sensational Susan?). Momany

man was so determined to spend the rest of his life with, in spite all the opposition within his extended family. Momany found a way therefore to get his biological mum out of Bafut (where she then was residing, also for easy and convenient dressing up of travel and other documents) back to the village before arranging in mid2008 for an uncle to take her down to Douala while waiting for the materialization of her sponsorship application that Momany initiated in 2010.

You can then tell the rest of the story as far as concerns doing anything that would (and there is practically almost none that does not) involve using a vehicle in Canada.
