Aissa Saved

(1932)
A novel by

 
 
"A most convincing, exciting and disturbing story."
The Observer

"Written with a detachment, and a refusal to take sides which make it doubly impressive."
The Spectator

"He writes so well, with such a fine understanding."
Daily Telegraph

The first of Joyce Cary's African novels.

Aissa, a frank and lively Fulani girl, lives in the district of Yanrin, Nigeria. A new and ardent convert to Christianity, she is feared and mistrusted by the local community who brand her a witch.

Yanrun is suffering a severe and prolonged drought and rioting breaks out between the different religious communities over whose God has the power to bring rain.

Aissa is torn between her Christian faith and deep respect for her people and their ways. The clash is finally resolved in a moment of great passion, sacrifice and triumph.
