Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. It is all her husband wants, all her mother-in-law wants, and she has tried everything - arduous pilgrimages, medical consultations, dances with prophets, appeals to God. But when her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 80s Nigeria,Ayobami Adebayo weaves a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief,
and the bonds of motherhood.
