The desire to improve ourselves and our conditions is natural. Everyone has this desire. It is inherent. Many times, we are helped by others in various ways; some other times, we are hindered or appear to be hindered by them. But the quest goes on, oftentimes, unconsciously. At times, it is on an individual level; other times, it is on a mass scale. Individually or collectively, hopefully, it is for the good of all. This book tells of an interaction between two cultures, namely the European culture and an African culture. The interaction could, conceivably, have been expressed through wars, politics, or trade and commerce. At one time or another, and on a much wider scope, these avenues of interaction did take place.

In the ensuing story, therefore, the widow cries out for ways to satisfy the need and to express the good inherent in everyone. Everyday human experiences show that this is always a tussle. Many times, more than a mere tussle. Maybe, even very crushing. But the unfailing light individualizes and, inevitably, shines through. In the pages of qOn her knees, Unto the Higher Godq we find that the need is unreservedly fulfilled to the level of expectancy and acceptance.A couple of hours later, however, the report was announced over the radio, confirming the teachera#39;s story.
