by Muli wa Kyendo

Whispers is the emotive story of Josephine, a young woman who gets caught up in a dramatic struggle for existence in the city. Brought up by a protective grandmother, Josephine leaves her rural home and gets a well-paid job as personal secretary.  But she soon realizes that a young and promising woman requires much more than high speeds in shorthand and typing. Trapped between reality of what she should do and what she would like to do, Josephine plunges into a desperate search for meaning in her life and for her own identity.
