Book of the month -The Son Of The House by Cheluchi Onyemelukwe-Onuobia
“We must do something to pass the time, I thought. Two women in a room, hands and feet tied.” Kidnapped in Nigeria by a group not unlike Boko Haram, two women, Nwabulu and Julie, relate the stories of the very different lives fate has meted out for them. When Nwabulu’s father dies, her stepmother sends her off to become a housemaid. For years, she suffers the abuse of employers, a love affair with an employer’s son offering little comfort.
