❥ Thank you #Partner @bibliolifestyle and @dundurnpress for sending me “The Son Of The House” By: Cheluchi Onyemelukwe Onuobia 🥰
Shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize!
The lives of two Nigerian women divided by class and social inequality intersect when they’re kidnapped, held captive, and forced to await their fate together.
In the Nigerian city of Enugu, young Nwabulu, a housemaid since the age of ten, dreams of becoming a typist as she endures her employers’ endless chores. She is tall and beautiful and in love with a rich man’s son.
Educated and privileged, Julie is a modern woman. Living on her own, she is happy to collect the gold jewellery lovestruck Eugene brings her, but has no intention of becoming his second wife.
When a kidnapping forces Nwabulu and Julie into a dank room years later, the two women relate the stories of their lives as they await their fate.
As always, the love and support is appreciated ☺️
