Queen of Glory (15) (AD)

Queen of Glory

Ghanaian-American Sarah is set to abandon her Ivy League program to follow her married lover across the country when her mother dies suddenly and makes her the owner of their bookshop in the Bronx.

'Queen of Glory' is the story of Sarah Obeng, the brilliant child of Ghanaian immigrants, who is quitting her Ivy League PhD program to follow her married lover to Ohio.

When her mother dies suddenly, she bequeaths her daughter a Christian bookstore in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx where Sarah was raised. A follow-up on the classic immigrant's tale, Queen of Glory provokes laughter and empathy, as its heroine is reborn through her inheritance.
