Lessons From My Grandmother is a fictional novel that explores the spiritual journey and self-discovery of its narrator, Yeukai. Inspired by the lessons she learned from her grandmother in Zimbabwe, Yeukai strives to overcome her personal obstacles while working in the United States and eventually transcends the mundanity of the world she sees around her. Poems interspersed throughout the novel poignantly capture Yeukai's triumphant journey, which leads her to the realization that a life of purpose is truly possible if we allow ourselves to be guided by mystic powers.
