Due to the economic situation on the continent, most Africans prefer to seek greener pastures in the more developed European and North American countries. However, in most cases, only few ever achieve their objective for migrating.
The book, Shattered Dreams, tells the story of four Nigerians, who, in a bid to achieve their lives’ goals, decide to migrate.
The first, after being duped by a fraudulent immigration agent while trying to secure a visa, resolves to embark on the journey by land to Europe, passing through the dangerous Sahara desert.
The second, a female, instead of being taken to Europe to work, finds herself trafficked into another African country for prostitution.
The third resigns his appointment from a high-paying banking job to migrate to Canada, only to discover that life is not that rosy on the other side of the Atlantic, and the last, who arrives in Russia for study, has to contend with racism, while an attack on a hostel populated by Africans on a particular Christmas day by racist gangs, shortly before the end of his studies, blighted his dream of a future life with the girl he hoped to spend the rest of his life with.
The book sheds light on reasons why majority of Africans crave the opportunity to migrate to the West, and the extent by which they will go in order to accomplish their ambition.
