Ekwefi is startled by Okonkwo, who has also followed the Oracle and intends to do what he must to protect their daughter. I was not surprised, as it is evident throughout the novel that Okonkwo loves his daughter dearly. Yes, he wished she would have been a boy, but regardless of the fact that all men want sons...... daughters are very special to their fathers.
