...Two sisters walk in on their father's sexual liaison with the family's hired help which leaves them both scarred in different ways.
Unable to bear the thought of marriage to a man she barely knows, the younger and more adventurous one, Munachi, runs away from home on the eve of her traditional marriage, unwittingly resurrecting a long buried feud between her religious mother and eccentric aunty. This conflict leaves a door open for the family's destruction.
The Domestication of Munachi is a novel about the unnecessary pressure on women to take on life partners, regardless of who these partners are and the psychological impacts seen through the stories of two sets of sisters-Munachi and Nkechi versus Chimuanya and Elizabeth.
