An Enugu, Eastern Nigerian city, is the setting for this story of a Nigerian family living there. The Nigerian civil war has left its mark on this family. Jonathan Iwegbu, the main character, was allowed to retain his bicycle, which he converted into a taxi in order to generate income. He earns 150 pounds in only two weeks.
Afterwards, Jonathan goes to Enugu in search of his family's house and discovers that it's still intact even though other buildings in the area have been destroyed around it. He realised the house needed some work, so he collected the necessary supplies and hired a carpenter to get it back to looking like a house.
After that, he returns to his home and his family. The whole household works long and hard hours in order to supplement their little income and start again.
Jonathan’s profession as a miner having been eliminated, he decides to open a pub in his home for troops. He is given an egg rasher for handing over 20 pounds in rebel money to the treasury.
Robbers in huge groups come up at his home the next night and want a ransom of 1000 pounds (around $1000). Jonathan was terrified, as were his parents and siblings. They requested assistance from the police and their next-door neighbour but no one responded.
Finally, Jonathan admitted that he didn't have a hundred pounds and stated he had a total of twenty pounds in his possession. The thief's leader agreed to take the same amount of money that the last victim had. The following morning, neighbours came over to offer their condolences, but Jonathan and his family were not there to receive them.
They'd just finished their job for the day. Since God doesn't seem to be bothered by theft, Jonathan's life carries on as normal.
