This is the inspiring story of one woman who fights to have the family she has always wanted, and to bring them up in a rapidly changing society. The author has set this poignant tale against the vivid background of Ethiopian history; 'Alamitu' is a powerful symbol of the Ethiopian matriarchy; yet this is a story so personal it cannot fail to touch the hearts of those who read it in the same way as its heroine undoubtedly touched the hearts of those who knew her.
