About the Book

The Seed That Must Grow is a story of a young girl who gets married at the age of fourteen. She goes through so many challenges in her life despite her enormous effort to put things in order. Her hard work and determination makes her to discover her self-worth through education. Sóliì’s first marriage to Tómla reveals her strong character despite her age and this trait is further exposed as she decides to go to school after the break-up of her marriage. Although she has so many challenges in her school life, she can still weather the storm since her love for knowledge is stronger than all the challenges she goes through. Despite the bitter experience in her first marriage, she decides to try her luck once more and marries Mr. Kimo, her former teacher; but as fate will have it, this second marriage becomes even worse than the first one. Having attained some degree of maturity, these mishaps do not deter this go-getter from attaining her goal which is getting herself into a professional institution of learning that guarantees employment, job security and empowerment.
