I want a louding voice. At fourteen, Adunni dreams of getting an education and giving her family a more comfortable home in her small Nigerian village.

Instead, Adunni's father sells her off to become the third wife of an old man.

When tragedy strikes in her new home, Adunni flees to the wealthy enclaves of Lagos, where she becomes a house-girl to the cruel Big Madam, and prey to Big Madam's husband.

But despite her situation continuously going from bad to worse, Adunni refuses to let herself be silenced. And one day, someone hears her. __________________________________________________'A story of courage that will win over your heart' Stylist'Daré's characters leap off the page, powering this funny, luminous and heart-swelling tale' Daily Mail'Such a vibrant, tender, beautiful novel . . .
