Light in a Trance by Clifford Chukwuka Okoh is a story of schoolboy Nkemcho, who is fascinated by the bedtime stories that his mother tells him each night. His friends enjoy stories too but they all understand that the stories are fictional whereas Nkemcho seems to believe that they could almost be real.
The story of Light in a Trance describes life in native, rural Africa and how neighbouring communities can either live together in harmony or be in competition with each other. The story follows Nkemcho's family and community and describes how the communities prosper.
Details of traditions and beliefs are shared and the book gives an interesting insight into how people in communities completely different to those in the UK live and survive. An enjoyable, relaxing, informative book for all to read.
