Halima isa novel covering the controversial relationship between two lovers from two opposing Nigerian cultures and religions. South-Eastern Nigeria, and Northern Nigeria are culturally rich regions , as are other parts of the country. The significance of the unification of these two sectors, as emphasized in this novel through this couple, is the consolidation of the spirit of the Nation. The journey of Nnanna and Halima, in a unique, though culturally unpopular union, heralds the birth of a son, who eventually brings two families and cultures together. The divisiveness is forgotten to celebrate this precious gift of new life. This son is a Metaphor, representing the future: emergence of a strong nation where differences in language and culture only serve to strengthen the land. It is the responsibility of the two lovers families presented in this novel, to embrace the future, and invest in
it as they raise their son, the future. Old traditions which cripple positive change, are modified to fulfill this task. Halima also illustrates the joys of sisterhood, and brotherhood, as the country Nigeria, the continent of Africa, and the entire world, usher in the new era of Globalization, beyond ethnic boundaries.
