This book, “DOZ Chronicles: Lara,” is a part of the DOZ Chronicles series and falls under the category of African Women Narratives. It is based on real life experiences and told in the first person narrative by Eturuvie Erebor. It is the story of young Lara, who finds her life slowly falling apart following the sudden and tragic death of her mother. Then at a time when she needs her father most, he abandons the family to seek greener pastures abroad. Lara is left in the care of her older sister, Nike, although this is not a favourable situation for her as Nike hates her and holds her responsible for the demise of their mother. Frustrated, Lara leaves home with nothing but the clothes on her back, the slippers on her feet and her mother’s Bible in her hands. She tries to seek help from the church, but she is turned away by a young overzealous preacher. Years later, Lara becomes a celebrated and sought-after evangelist. In this elevated position, she meets with the preacher who had turned her away from church and the sister who had sent her away from home. Can she truly forgive all that has happened?
