George Anetomang's New Book "Time and Chance" is an Intense Story on the Undercurrents of Change Overturning an African Village.
Recent release "Time and Chance" from Covenant Books author George Anetomang is a unique and insightful novel that weaves together the different perspectives of African men who return from wealthier nations to their home village of Obrayebona, struggling to make sense of the social, cultural, and spiritual changes in their hometown as they each strive to establish a career and a family.
Columbus, OH, May 17, 2019 (Newswire.com) - George Anetomang, a Ghana-born researcher and writer, a PhD graduate from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota and an MBA graduate of Franklin University in Columbus, Ohio, where he lives with his wife and children, has completed his new book “Time and Chance”: an astonishing debut novel.
George writes, “Sociopolitical upheavals and natural disasters in a country compel young men to emigrate from their realm. After perilous journeys, they settle in wealthier and more stable countries, but they don’t want to be detached from their roots. Therefore, the young men go back home to marry and bring their wives with them to live in their new domiciles. However, many of the men are disappointed because they are engaged in nasty rat race with their spouses. The struggle for creature comforts in the affluent countries relegates the fear and love of God to the background and dissolves marriages irresponsibly. But the mad quest for riches leaves many a couple none the better because:
The race is not to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
Nor bread to the wise,
Nor riches to men of understanding,
Nor favor to men of skill,
But time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11)”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, George Anetomang’s new book is an immersive tale, wide-ranging and vividly detailed, that explores the universal struggles of ambition, marriage, adultery, and family, as well as the clashes between expectation and reality that sweeps over an African village facing values from a foreign world.
Anetomang astutely illustrates the pains of progress, the discontents of material possessions, and the misunderstandings that arise from cultural barriers, appropriately drawing insight from the Holy Bible to provide not just a portrait of a complicated people but also a cautionary tale about the right way to live in harmony and holy matrimony.
Readers can purchase “Time and Chance” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
