My new novel ‘My sister’s pain will be released February 10th 2017. The official book launch will be at the iconic Hackney Empire.
Nkechi and Adaora are accomplished, driven sisters, wrestling with identity, danger, relationships and the expectations of their Nigerian family. Cheeky young brother Chidi must find his place in the world, too.
Teacher Nkechi embarks on a trip to Nigeria with her father, eager to understand cultural traditions and prepare for her wedding. But the trip ends in tragedy, requiring far deeper self-exploration than expected. Her fiancé, Patrick, must search his soul, too.
Psychotherapist Adaora is a high-achiever, unable to sustain relationships despite her intelligence and beauty. She faces the consequences of her life-choice to remain childless – the wrath of her deeply religious mother, Mrs Edozie, and the loss of every man she cares for.
The sisters weave a tapestry of cultural and personal clashes – of happiness and broken relationships. Can their sisterhood survive?
