Om Joy Came in the Morning
When Isabella Ennison meets Orlando West, an African-American physician visiting Sierrra Leone, she is immediately struck by his remarkable resemblance to her husband, Yao, and brings the two men together. Yao soon comes to the conclusion that Orlando West must the half-brother given up for adoption many years ago and decides to surprise his unsuspecting mother. The reappearance of her long-lost son shocks Cobola Ennison at first, but the reunion soon becomes a joyful event. However, as she and Orlando start the process of rebuilding a relationship, she knows that she will have to answer the age-old question: why did you give me away? and that to provide an adequate answer, she will have to tell him the story from the beginning.
