Summary
"Secure in the love of her husband in spite of cultural pressures for him to have a polygamous marriage, Yejide is overwhelmed by shock and pain when her initial inability to become pregnant compels her husband to take a second wife, a situation that leads to her own desperate and fateful quest to conceive a child" --
Summary
Despite cultural pressures for her husband to take a second wife, Yejide trusts that Akin would never do so... until, after four years of failing to conceive a child, he does. Under constant scrutiny to conceive and keeping secrets from one other, the couple struggles while their marriage falters and the country's political system crumbles. Alternating chapters told from each characters' perspective capture both the agony of would-be parents struggling with infertility, and the broader turmoil in Nigeria during the late 1980s. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
