This anthology of short stories is unique in a way that the characterization emulates the South Sudanese society. It demonstrates livelihood to feel and solely instils a better understanding of South Sudanese and how they relate to their neighbors in the flow of these stories.
It serves as a great critique to the downright political mess which hampers peaceful coexistence amongst the people of South Sudan. Some stories have emanated from the most recent war playing a great challenge to bad political life in the country.
Nevertheless, the unity that some South Sudanese have shown to their other tribesmen alongside the rebellions is shown contrary to disunity. It criticizes and suggests the track which should have been followed instead of the track which nearly torn the nation apart.
There is a plight of children and women and more so the importance of unity, transparency and peaceful coexistence in nation building. These are shown through actions of the characters in these twelve stories and their traits as opposed to or in acceptance of various arguments. This collection is a one of its kind.
