For romance, I would recommend the book, 'The Blessed Girl' by Angela Makholwa says Shea. It involves the story of Bontle who’s a blessee he adds.
It is a bit of romance, it’s not a comedy – it’s satire.Griffin Shea, owner of Bridge Books
Shea says that the author has touched on how the idea of being a blessee, is no longer frowned on. He adds that the social commentary is great as it touched on the changes of social norms, and their acceptance of gold diggers.
