This is the story of Karina, a woman who has run away from her husband and daughter, in the rural Tamb village, for a new life in the town. The economic meltdown has caused the redundancy of her husband, but there is also a great deal of corruption combined with general lawlessness in her new home in Fort City, and the victims of this are always the poor people. Karina meets her old friend, Lexus, who helps her to join the vending business, and she finds the power and benefit of true friendly love as she meets other vendors, Beebow and Lussa, who both stand by her side. This togetherness is a blessing in comforting Karina's troubled heart.
Karina's husband, Jaki, has been left to fend for himself and their dejected daughter, Keso, in the rural Tamb village, but resorts to excessive drinking as a way of comforting his predicament. The lone daughter grows up without motherly care, love and guidance, and lives a pathetic life on her own.
The book highlights on the nature of marriages people have, the types of weddings people undertake, and exposes the behaviour of righteous and fake pastors. There is also an overview of genuine and fake politicians. Decisions made by politicians determine the way their people live. Pastors and politicians can either uplift the standard of people's lives or bring them down to their knees. There is an acidic attack on bad politicians as the root cause of the suffering of many people in other continents.
