Babajide Oyekunie and Ore Apampa capture the intersecting lives in this novel set in modern-day Nigeria. Eniola is a good-looking boy who hopes to turn around his family's fortunes by working for a rising politician. Wuraola is a young, female doctor from an affluent family whose father also has political aspirations. The story is told in alternating chapters. Oyekunie softly delivers the voice of Eniola, capturing the hardships endured by a teen who is interested in education whose father can't afford to send him to school. Apampa is the weary Wuraola, who is overlooking red flags to appease her family and avoid becoming a spinster. This is an engaging listen, though many will want to be aware that there are scenes of domestic violence. M.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
