Book Review: An Unproductive Woman by Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali

 Description from Goodreads:
After ten years of marriage, Asabe and Adam remain childless. Fueled by desperation and a long held secret, Adam marries a second wife. This decision acts as the catalyst to change no one could have predicted. Read An Unproductive Woman to learn what secrets Adam has withheld that would explain his unreasonable longing and pursuit of a son at all costs.

My thoughts: 
This book is a very interesting and easy read. Asabe is a great woman, and no matter what her husband does, she is loyal, and stands by his side. He decided to take on a second wife and eventually a third wife to become pregnant with a son because Asabe is not able to conceive. Not everything works as planned and alot of heartache and struggle follow with the new wives and the children they have.

I really liked this book alot overall, but the editing was definitely lacking. It did not take away from the story by any means, but just could've been better. I would check out other books by this author. 

I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars


  1. after reading the review of this book i am thnking to read it. usually man always blame women for being childless or not to give birth to the desired gender. but its not in her hands.
