In ‘One Day Without Shoes’, a flooded house teaches a couple that love and romance can bloom despite being ravaged by the vagaries of nature and in “Northbound” another Africa Book Club story of the month and a major motion picture titled ‘For My Girls,’ a teenage girl is lured away from home by a scheming boyfriend and winds up as a sex slave where she is forced to have babies which are put up for sale. In ‘What If’, a husband’s looming infidelity fed by his desperate desire to father a child threatens to tear his home apart and in ‘Dream On’, a fairy-tale African romance turns sour when a woman deals with the aftermath of giving up her dreams to raise a family. The title story, “Shakara,” depicts the unlikely love story between a mentally challenged woman who plies her sex trade in the streets of Port Harcourt and the efforts of an ‘oyinbo’ man who loves and tries to save her.
