Sounds of the Drums by Naa Shalman
Rama and her children suffer at the hands of her abusive husband until his untimely death frees them from his tyrannical reign over their lives. Just as the women are taking their first breaths of independence, though, tradition demands that Rama immediately marry another – a warrior known only as The Dragon and who is an even more frightening man than the one she has just buried. Her new husband, Bediako, arrives on the doorstep of her bedchamber to claim the woman whom he has secretly loved since his youth. Unfortunately, their tenuous union is interrupted when Bediako is called away to save the maidens of their village who have been captured by a warring tribe. The journey afar to battle the terrifying Cursed Tribe may not succeed in the young women’s safe return but will certainly end in the death of some of their brave rescuers. Rama is left to reflect on her new husband and search her heart to uncover his true intentions towards her and her own towards him. Is he just a means by which she and her children may continue to survive? Or, could this be the pure love she has always yearned for?
