“I enjoyed this novel very much. A story of love, tragedy, courage, and hope. A unique journey to another place and time that makes you feel as if you are in the village of Zentua, living with the people there. Excellent character development, with a true sense of where the story occurs. Very nicely done, Author Akpoebi Nora Ojeke.”

The tale has real and lovable characters, scenes that are so vivid and a plot that will entertain minds that crave a great story. For a first-time narrative, Nora has excelled and readers are guaranteed a jolly ride into skilful depths of creativity. – Ify Omeni, the Tale Weaver and bestselling author of Wind of Change and Song at Sunrise –

Life is beautiful in the small, vibrant, African village of Zentua, a proud ebony race that fully embraces the love of its culture and traditions. The Omilo family is highly respected by all. Omilo is a great warrior and highly sought after by all the maidens. Omilo has eyes for only his youngest wife, Talo and the villagers envy the love that exists between them.

When tragedy strikes, the villagers have to confront unexpected events. Will the Omilo family and the entire village overcome the changes that arise, to disrupt their once peaceful lives?
