‘Family curses don’t exist. Sure, some families seem to suffer more pain than others, but a curse? An actual curse? I don’t think so.’ A family tragedy was the catalyst for Ian Perkins to return to the isolated cottage with his wife and young son. But now they are back, it seems yet more grief might befall the family.There is still time to act, but that means Ian must face the uncomfortable truth about his past. And in doing so, he must uncover the truth behind the supposed family curse.

But to do so she must trust those on the outside.Those who have their own motives… Discovery means death. But what choice has any woman trapped in a man’s world?

WakeMeWhenImGoneWake Me When I’m Gone by Odafe Atogun (ARC courtesy of NetGalley & Canongate)

Everyone says that Ese is the most beautiful woman in the region, but a fool. A young widow, she lives in a village, where the crops grow tall and the people are ruled over by a Chief on a white horse. She married for love, but now her husband is dead, leaving her with nothing but a market stall and a young son to feed. When the Chief knocks on Ese’s door demanding that she marry again, as the laws of the land dictate she must, Ese is a fool once more. There is a high price for breaking the law, and an even greater cost for breaking the heart of a Chief. Ese will face the wrath of gods and men in the fight to preserve her heart, to keep her son and to right centuries of wrongs. She will change the lives of many on the road to freedom, and she will face the greatest pain a mother ever can.

    1. Really liked The Girl in the Glass Tower, well-researched but still works as historical fiction. Broken Branches I’ve heard good things about but been told start is quite slow. Wake Me When I’m Gone I’m hoping will be another good book from a Nigerian writer (like Stay WIth Me and Half of a Yellow Sun). Great cover as well.

  1. I like the sound of The Girl in the Glass Tower (though I hate the title – it makes it sound like one of the ubiquitous domestic thrillers). Looking forward to hearing what you thought of it… 🙂
