#BookReview #Hold by Michael Donkor

‘Friendship

Family

Shame

Forgiveness

What should we cling to, and when is it time to let go?’

Hold is the debut novel from Michael Donkor and has just been published by Fourth Estate. Moving between Ghana and London, Hold is described as ‘an intimate, moving, powerful coming-of-age novel’, telling the story of Belinda, a young Ghanaian who finds herself living in London, so utterly different from her life as a housegirl in Ghana.

I received my copy from Harper Collins Ireland in return for my unbiased and voluntary review.

Please do read on for my thoughts…
