Publisher's Summary

Introducing a powerful new novelist whose evocation of an unforgettable African family is testament to the transformative power of unconditional love

Kwaku Sai is dead. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, he succumbs suddenly at dawn outside the home he shares in Ghana with his second wife. The news of Kwaku's death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. Ghana Must Go is their story.

Electric, exhilarating, beautifully crafted, Ghana Must Go follows the Sais' journey, moving with great elegance through time and place to share the truths hidden and lies told; the crimes committed in the name of love. In the wake of Kwaku's death, the family gathers in Ghana, at their mother, Fola's, new home. The eldest son and his new wife; the mysterious, beautiful twins; their baby sister, now a young woman - all come together for the first time in years, each carrying secrets of his own. What is revealed in their coming together is the story of how they came apart.

But the horrible fragility of the world they have built soon becomes clear, and Kwaku's leaving begets a series of betrayals that none of them could have imagined. Splintered, alone, each navigates his pain, believing that what has been lost can never be recovered - until, in Ghana, a new way forward, a new family, begins to emerge.

Ghana Must Go is at once a portrait of a family and an exploration of the importance of where we come from and our obligations to one another. In a sweeping narrative that takes us from West Africa to New England to London, Ghana Must Go teaches that the stories we share with one another can build a new future.

    Story
    "Ghana Must GO!!!"
    If you could sum up Ghana Must Go in three words, what would they be?

    I Love It!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    A toss between Kehinde...Olu. Their power, their genius.


    Have you listened to any of Adjoa Andoh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Americana. There's no comparison because they were both great books. Person with an incredible voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Taiwo's transformation. Powerful.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a another great book read by Adjoa Andoh. It was a bit difficult to follow at the beginning, but as it continued, WOW, incredible. :)

    "Unforgettable Family"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is an entertaining book that tells the true human story of a family dynamic. The prose is lyrical and the way the author interweaves the tales of each family member is exceptional. The listener is given an intimate view of the inner thoughts of the characters. The story is one I will remember for a long time. The ending does not disappoint.

    Story
    "Poetic - Bitter - Sweet - Beautiful"

    It took me awhile to get in sync with the writer’s style. Tisye writing is poetic, she draws you in but once you are in wow, you feel and see the characters. It truly is a story about family, love, disappointments, hurts, and healing. Tisye beautifully weaved a story so true to life, it left me with a bitter sweetness, but is that not life.
