SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 WELLCOME BOOK PRIZE LONGLISTED FOR THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE 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. But when her relatives insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 1980s Nigeria, Stay With Me is a story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the power of grief, and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood. It is a tale about the desperate attempts we make to save ourselves, and those we love, from heartbreak.
I really loved the writing style of the author, it really got me hooked. The only thing was I kind of expected her husband to be impotent but that just made the entire story funnier. Yep definitely a recommended read for everyone.
Stay with me
