Under an Emerald Sky

by Olukemi Amala
£11.99   paperback  The Linen Press (2011)

Under an Emerald Sky by Olukemi Amala Two babies are born five minutes apart in a UK hospital.
 
Immersed in her rich Nigerian heritage, Yewande grows up able to hear her ancestors’ voices – a double edged sword that heightens her spiritual awareness, but alienates her sister and brings horrifying revelations about her family’s past. Mary is rejected at birth by her mother who has abandoned her African roots as she tries to blend into a small town in suburban Britain.
 
How will each girl survive these legacies on her journey to adulthood?
 
A big, important novel leavened with fun and studded with episodes of astonishing beauty.

"A rare and compelling novel...This remarkable book tells of the past, of present adaptations, of old and new attitudes towards issues of oppression and power."
(Dr. Harbrinder Dhillon-Stevens, 
Lecturer, Psychotherapist, Writer.)
