Description

Growing up in the care of her loving seamstress grandmother in Nigeria, Tolani doesn't know much about her own mother, and she's confused when she hears herself referred to as a "bastard child." What does that say about her mother-and Tolani herself? Despite her mysterious roots, Tolani feels safe and stable until Nigeria's ethnic tensions erupt into civil war, and she's sent to live with her Auntie in the suburb of Ikoyi. After enduring years of her Auntie's emotional haranguing and silently suffering through her Auntie's husband's sexual abuse, Tolani finds solace in love. She falls hard for Jeff Norfolk, a white man working for an international oil company. But when Jeff leaves her, Tolani's precarious security crumbles again, leaving her devastated and suicidal. Through faith, she finds untapped resilience and the strength to rise from the ashes of crippling depression. Jeff might have left Nigeria behind, but Tolani is determined to find a way to resurrect their love. Sholabomi Joseph's powerful debut novel, "End of My Rainbow," is the story of one woman's journey through spiritual and emotional hell-and her subsequent victory over her own demons.show more
