Inhalt
Ijeoma comes of age as her nation does - born before independence, she is eleven when civil war breaks out in the young republic of Nigeria. Sent away to safety, she meets another displaced child and they, star-crossed, fall in love. They are from different ethnic communities. They are also both girls. When their lesbian love is discovered, Ijeoma learns that she will have to hide this part of herself. But there is a cost to living inside a lie. Even as their nation contends with and recovers from the effects of war and division, Nigerian lives are also wrecked and lost from taboo and prejudice. This story offers a glimmer of hope - a future where a woman might just be able to shape her life around truth and love.
