"Treasures in Darkness "is volume one of a three-book series. Actually a memoir, it reads like a novel and tells the story of a young African girl whose early life revolves around her grandmother and the simple things afforded her as a child in their small community in Cameroon. Initially, her education will take her beyond the community, where she begins to experience other cultures and other parts of the world. She adapts, but her heart is never far from the lessons she learned from her grandmother. It is the power of these truths that will sustain her as she tries to find meaning in this very different world in which she finds herself. Hegngi's life story will appeal to young professionals, especially those born in one culture, growing up in another, and working in a third. They will explore topics that include the role of culture on their development as a person, values and beliefs, how their core values are cultivated and sustained, and how to remain connected to previous generations in spite of differences. Hegngi appeals to parents and grandparents, who are interested in preserving their family legacy, providing proof they do make a difference in a child's life and help young people remain connected to their roots, values and beliefs, as they prepare for a future that is very different from the present. Other social areas discussed are how a family, community or culture adapts to losing the contributions of those young people who have moved on. Hegngi includes family photos within the book.
