Description


"In this spellbinding novel, Meye presents a woman who emerges from the battlefield of domestic violence completely bloodied but unbowed. The hauntingly disturbing story keeps readers on the edge, until the brutalized victim, through sheer force of resilience and unshakable faith in her personal worth, breaks through the glass ceiling that domestic violence has imposed on her, by clenching a diploma that opens doors of freedom she never thought she could enter. ... A must read " - Martin Jumbam, author of Beads of Memory and From the Highlands of Nkar to the World "The Beast gives the reader insight into a woman's plight in a society caught between modern women's empowerment and perpetually patriarchal tradition. Meye paints a detailed, authentic picture that allows you to empathize with and pray for the protagonist and her children." - Debora Johnson-Ross, Ph.D., VP for Academic Affairs/Dean of the Faculty, www.wartburg.edu

"A fast-paced, action-packed description of the daily marital life of a too familiar heroine, representing a quintessential African woman. ... Her resilience in the face of adversity is the bedrock of this novel. A must-read, a great narrative indeed." - Yaah Maggie Kilo, Ph.D., educator "An echography of a woman's ordeal in a matrimonial bond(age) where nearly every effort to prick the human sensibility of her male partner fails to ruffle his carapace of deeply engraved structural misogyny coupled with sheer individual callousness." - Gilbert Shang Ndi, Ph.D., University of Bayreuth/Bavarian Academy of Sciences/Humanities
