Burning Library of Africa is a historical fiction about events that unfolded in medieval period, during and after European era. The book chronicles the stories into one grand narrative, that is, how this nation of people [Efik] weathered the violent storm that swept through these periods in history [slave trade, colonialism, civil war]. In the end, religion and simple act of kindness unspooled calming effects in a turbulent sea of historical violence and mistrust. Religion became the moderating voice of reason and understanding that changed hearts and minds of the natives for better or worse through out the region. And also, it has a fiction-reality motif suffused with humor, proverb and poetry. Stories that did not get told and could have been forever lost.
