Books by Somi Ekhasomhi
Sophie is young, beautiful, and runs her own magazine. She loves her life, her job, her friends, in fact, she has everything she wants. What she doesn’t have, however, is the man she has been in love with for the past five years.
Michael once crushed her feelings, after taking her innocence. After all this time, she should have forgotten him, but she is still desperately in love with him.
The best way to get over someone is to see them again, or so they say. So when Sophie engineers a meeting with Michael, all she wants, is to finally be able to forget him, or so she tells herself.
But as soon as she sees him again, she realizes that she still wants him, and he seems delighted to see her again. Everything is going well, until he tells her that he is engaged, crushing her hopes again. Now she has to fall out of love with him, as difficult as that is, or give in to the temptation of loving him, even though he belongs to someone else.
Ada has her life planned, and there’s no place in it for men or relationships. Even if she had the time or the inclination, Eddie Bakare is the last man she would ever consider. He may be every girl’s fantasy – handsome, rich, charming, and so sure of himself – but Ada is not interested in fantasy when reality keeps her very well occupied.
But Eddie is determined to make her change her mind. Will she be able to resist him now that she is the center of his attentions, and does she even want to?
In a world where an accusation of theft is enough for a person to be lynched brutally, all it takes is an old tire, some fuel, a box of matches, and an eager crowd.
On a busy day in the streets, a young girl who has recently been transported from her uneventful life in a poor village, to live a life of forced servitude in Lagos, witnesses the vicious lynching of an innocent young man, as well as the brutal and questionable justice that soon follows.
