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.

Amazing read

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.

True love

I consumed this book at an alarming rate for someone who has a 9-5 but it was truly worth every moment. Would not only recommend but will also be reading this many more times !
