Part One of the Ufot Cycle, Udofia’s sweeping, nine-part saga chronicling the triumphs and losses of Nigerian immigrant Abasiama Ufot and her family. Abasiama arrives in America with high hopes for her arranged marriage and her future, intent on earning a degree and returning home. But when her husband is seduced by America, she must choose between the Nigerian or American Dream. Sojourners offers a moving and powerful corrective to the notion that what immigrants leave behind is always awful, and that what they find is always worth the trip.
