Yefon: The RedNecklace (YRN) is the first book of the YEFON trilogy series. It will have you wrapped up with emotions you didn’t know you had!
Young tribal girl, Yefon Labam, knows she’s different.
During the 1950’s, in her Central African village, women are uneducated and are expected to either work on a farm or be one of many wives, but Yefon dares for more—she wants to learn how to read, even if looking at a book could mean her death. Although everyone thinks she’s an abomination, including her mother and sisters, her father knows she’s destined for greater things.
When he is murdered, Yefon clings to the gift he gave her for inspiration—a red necklace. She soon comes to realize that the necklace is no ordinary ornament, but a talisman crafted by the spirits. Yefon walks a dangerous path that could lead to her freedom…or her death.

Let me just preface this review by saying that I forgot this was a trilogy and I was livid when the book just ended. Really!? Seriously!? It just ended.
Now that I realize it is a trilogy, I am much calmer because I really wasn’t sure how we were going to fit everything into one book.
Initially, I felt the book was a little slow for my taste, but I really got into.
Yefon’s way of life is so different than what I am accustomed too that I got lost in her world.
I felt that I could relate to Yefon in a lot of ways – the outspoken, tom boy-ish behavior; going against what we were told we are supposed to do and be. I felt that I could definitely relate to her on a much better level than anyone else in the story and I loved following her journey.
I am dying to get my hands on the second book to continue the journey. I have so many wishes for Yefon that I want to see where her destiny leads!
I definitely recommend this read!
