Abstract:

"A novel about a married Nigerian couple who must grapple with staggering levels of loss and betrayal in their quest to create a family for themselves"--

Yejide and Akin fell in love and married while at university. Though many expected Akin to take several wives, he and Yejide agreed polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage-- after consulting fertility doctors and healers, trying strange teas and unlikely cures-- Yejide is still not pregnant. When her family arrives with a young woman they introduce as Akin's second wife, Yejide knows the only way to save her marriage is to get pregnant. She does--but at a cost far greater than she could have dared to imagine.
