A meeting with a Canadian filmmaker changed his life. Will Massawudu be able to walk again? Find out in this true story.

3. Non Fiction Book of the Month

Book Title: Silence is Not Golden’

Silence is not a woman’s best garment as some 16th-century proverb would have us believe. In many situations, speech is golden rather than silver. Emotion suppression has sunk many into various heartrending situations of depression.

People have suffered high blood pressure, poor memory, breakdown in immune system, insomnia, and other forms of poor psychological or physiological conditions due to the habit of bottling up emotions.

Why keep silent to prove that you are strong when in truth you are being weakened by it? Why carry that issue that burns within the recesses of your soul to your grave and deny the living lessons and wisdom from your story?

Call this book the voice of the voiceless and you cannot be truer. It echoes the often-overlooked cry of many women and captures the enduring frustrations of some families out there in the real world.

Available in Shell Shops in Ghana
