'Unforgettable' New York Times
"I don't just want to be having any kind voice . . .I want a louding voice". At fourteen, Adunni dreams of getting an education and giving her family a more comfortable home in her small Nigerian village. Instead, Adunni's father sells her off to become the third wife of an old man.
When tragedy strikes in her new home, Adunni flees to the wealthy enclaves of Lagos, where she becomes a house-girl to the cruel Big Madam, and prey to Big Madam's husband. But despite her situation continuously going from bad to worse, Adunni refuses to let herself be silenced. And one day, someone hears her.
This novel is simply unforgettable. For those both familiar with life in Nigeria, and for those less familiar, it provides a stirring insight into the hopes and drams of a young brilliant girl, representative of so many other unheard voices.Paperback
