Who gets good water? Who decides? "The Advocacy" portrays how the fate of water for Ghanaian subsistence farmers rests in the hands of multinational mining corporation, West Africa Gold. Told through the eyes of civil engineer Louisa Lehmann, who struggles to fulfill the mandate of her profession to provide the most basic human need, Melissa Fischer's novel "conveys in poetry what cannot be truthfully expressed in prose. It made me sad to reach the end.” W. E. ABRAHAM, Advisor to Kwame Nkrumah
