Women are Different is the moving story of a group of Nigerian women, from their schooldays together through the trails and tribulations of their adult lives.
Through their stories we see some of the universal problems faced by women everywhere: the struggle for financial independence and a rewarding career, combined with the need to bring up a family often without a man.
All this is set against the background of a developing Nigeria, from colonial times, through the Nigerian Civil War tot he present day.
Once again, Flora Nwapa demonstrates her skill and compassionate insight into the problems of women in creating a book you will never forget.
