"If children are our future, it’s important that they remember the past, because if they don’t, no one will. Who, if not parents, can impart family histories and heritage upon children? Nkem DenChukwu’s inspirational collection, the issues of bloodline and heritage are tackled head-on, along with the importance of one’s culture.

In Part I, DenChukwu delves into the tribal heritage of the Igbos of Eastern Nigeria. She explains it vividly, how being born in any one country does not determine who you really are. Instead, your bloodline represents your true heritage. In understanding the difference, DenChukwu believes you can better understand yourself.

In Part II, she transitions into lucid life tales to show the beauty in a language, how one’s culture and the lack thereof, can affect one’s thought processes and behavior. It is possible to lose an accent or assimilate into a new culture. It is also possible to forget your heritage, and in this forgetfulness, people lose much."
