    Everything Good Will Come

    ,
    Sefi Atta (Author) Everything Good Will Come introduces an important new voice in contemporary fiction. With insight and a lyrical wisdom, Nigerian-born Sefi Atta has written a powerful and eloquent story set in her African homeland. It is 1971, a year after the Biafran War, and Nigeria is under military rule--though the politics of the state matter less than those of her home to Enitan Taiwo, an eleven-year-old girl tired of waiting for school to start. Will her mother, who has become deeply religious since the death of Enitan's brother, allow her friendship with the new girl next door, the brash and beautiful Sheri Bakare? This novel charts the fate of these two African girls; one who is prepared to manipulate the traditional system and one who attempts to defy it. Written in the voice of Enitan, the novel traces this unusual friendship into their adult lives, against the backdrop of tragedy, family strife, and a war-torn Nigeria. In the end, Everything Good Will Come is Enitan's story; one of a fiercely intelligent, strong young woman coming of age in a culture that still insists on feminine submission. Enitan bucks the familial and political systems until she is confronted with the one desire too precious to forfeit in the name of personal freedom: her desire for a child. Everything Good Will Come evokes the sights and smells of Africa while imparting a wise and universal story of love, friendship, prejudice, survival, politics, and the cost of divided loyalties.

    Your Father Walks Like A Crab: Poetry For People Who Hate Poetr

    ,
    Tolu' Akinyemi (Author) A lot of people 'hate' poetry because of its usually obscure language. 'Your Father Walks Like A Crab', however contains poetry stripped of conformity and with a motive to portray poetry as enjoyable, especially to those people who do not normally read poetry. It is fresh, vivid, whimsical, somewhat cheeky and sprinkled with wit and humour. It is about relationships: familial, platonic or romantic, and also general day to day experiences and observations of the poet. In a good way, this book contains the kind of poetry that you most likely haven't read before.

    Antonyms of a Mirage

    ,
    Atilola O Moronfolu (Author) A character having multiple personality disorder decides to express herself. With six different personalities in her head vying for the spotlight, a constant battle occurs as the book progresses. The sagacious one starts with her wise stories, in her usual mature style. As the bitter one, the melancholic one and others take over, more heart wrenching issues are exposed, and the reality of the world we live in comes to play. Each character invites you to her world, to experience what they are experiencing in their own unique way. The book starts with a story about corruption in Corruption Noni, where the writer had the opportunity to interview corruption and then progresses to really deep stories that touch prostitution, religious hypocrisy, marital pressures, and other societal ills. Each story portrays a reality that you can relate with. At the end, the comic one ends up defeats all and is victorious with her funny stories, proving that no matter how twisted our reality is, there is always a reason to laugh in the end.

    Godfessions: Daily Confession of God’s Word and Promises Over Your Life

    ,
    Goke Coker (Author) In a world fraught with evil, encroaching darkness, violence, strife, confusion, attacks on families, failing finances, and health, distractions and emotional instability, man's usual reaction is that of despondency and negative proclamations. In the beginning, when God saw the darkness that covered the face of the earth, He decreed what He wanted to see rather than agree with what He saw. Since we are made in His image, rather than confessing the problem (darkness) we are to confess the solution (the WORD) thereby transforming darkness to light. (Rom 10:10) "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" Believing and confessing are an important part of our Christian walk. What becomes manifest in our lives depends on our faith and confession. When our lips contradicts the word of God, we prevent His work in and through us, but when we get our hearts and lips in line with His word, He manifests His grace in us and His power flows through us. God'fessions is the first of four compilations of inspired confessions of God's promises. This book will help you cultivate an awareness of your spiritual blessings and the limitless power of God as well as enable you grow stronger in your faith, as you establish the truth of God's word over you and your household through your declarations. Start Godfessing! Your Change is here!

At that point he began to harbour doubts about the career path he has chosen. By a stroke of fortune his luck turned. He struck a big deal that sent shock waves through the bank. It was like bringing home the Holy Grail and suddenly he was loved again. In the revelry of his accomplishment he fell into a brief moment of reflection from which he found the truth that freed him from all his fears. He must then make an inevitable decision- between work and family, fear and happiness.
