Forging your own path requires strength and courage

A refugee in Nigeria's civil war, Ijeoma leads a displaced and fragmented childhood. In a time and place where no one is safe, she stifles her ambitions and sexuality for the sake of survival. In this moving, beautifully written love story, Okparanta writes, and rewrites, Christian and Nigerian tales, dreaming of ways Ijeoma can find a place for herself in a hostile culture.
