Review of "As Waters Gone By"
This is the story of a man's loss of his wife and children in a landslide in Mabeta New Layout, Cameroon. Pa Lang was in Silver Spring, Maryland, visiting his daughter and son-in-law when the rains came to his village, and swept away his family. Upon his return to bury the bodies, he is accused of causing their deaths by his superstitious peers. Through an invocation of his dead wife by a witch doctor, he's proven innocent of any misdoing. The tragedy cripples his spirit until he meets Gladys Amateh with whom he has a romantic relationship until his death. 2 Stars
