Nnu Ego is a Nigerian woman whose life revolves around her children. Through her children, she comes to be respected among the members of her community. The continuously increasing colonial presence and influence make the traditional tribal values and customs lose their charm and influence of the native Africans. Ego is also inspired by the changing social scenario to challenge the accepted notions of mother, wife, and woman. The author tries to show to the reader how difficult it is for the women in a traditional society to adopt new ideas and new values. The author tries to illustrate how fulfilling and rewarding motherhood can be. The process of child bearing and nurturing the children is dealt with extensively by the author. Although motherhood has its joys and pleasures, anxiety, pain, and obligation are also the inevitable part of it.
