Where The Waters Recede

NGN5,500.00

Reference:

Omitirin, a young Yoruba priestess who is captured by Fulani bandits and sold into slavery, fights to return to her family. A ruthless warlord plots for more power and glory, and a heartbroken English missionary far from home hopes for redemption in the dark African heartland. It is 1826, and as their paths cross, all three struggle to make sense of their lives and their articles of faith, as the British arrive and the great Oyo empire collapses around them.

A gorgeous, gripping, yet heartbreaking historical novel that combines solid historical research with a compelling imagination, to deliver an important story about the Yoruba’s at the time of the old Old Oyo empire, the coming of the English missionaries. And the price a young slave girl pays for her act of obedience.
