Item description for Deacon's Board by Tifuh Awah...
Deacons' Board is a novel about contemporary African and world issues like greed, corruption, tribalism, neo-colonialism, hypocrisy, witchcraft and others, which like canker worms, have eaten deep in to the fabrics of society destroying it and frustrating the people. It's a world where a young girl is scandalised and confused about whom to follow as she observes the events happening around her. She watches Deacon Bah corrupt the church song leader Sister Grace but nobody finds fault in that, not even the Pastor. This results in Miriam loosing her fiance Ephesians. Ephesians goes to revenge on Deacon Bah's daughter and ends up marrying her. But, will the marriage work? It's the peak of the economic crises; things are hard, so hard for every body. There is tribalism and favouritism in church and people are struggling just to make ends meet. But, could Grace have coped under such circumstances without necessarily falling in love with an old man, worst of all a man who is one of the pillars in the church? These are some of the pertinent questions which the writer tries to answer. This novel falls under the category of committed African literature with a universal appeal.
