Association of Foreign Spouses Summary à 8 Ildered her But Eva has her friends Dahlia Yelena and Margrit all of them strangers in a foreign la. I heard about this book not long after I read Heward Mills first novel Cloth Girl though it took longer than expected to be actually published I was very intrigued by the title as there is a real organisation here in Ghana called International Spouses Association of Ghana and like the group in Heward Mills novel it is made up of non Ghanaians married to Ghanaians So I guess I did wonder whether someall of the characters were based on real people Certainly the political and economic situation does ring partly true as I can personally attest having lived in Ghana s second city during the 1980s Overall I found this second novel not as interesting as the first one but it was still enjoyable
