Awiti wants to find out; is she cursed or just out of luck. Should she throw out the logic of modern medicine? What must she do to overcome her struggles?
In the book The Budding Tree (2019) Awiti takes us on an intimate journey of the mental and emotional state of women who have suffered recurrent miscarriages.
We are invited to a world of modern women and African traditional women who share similar experiences in child loss. We get to see how differently these two women face their demons, how they fight to become.
The book also speaks about the role men play in the lives of such women. It promotes awareness and eradication of related stigmas.
