Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. When her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. It will lead to jealousy, betrayal and despair. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of '80s Nigeria, Stay with Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings. Ayobami Adebayo weaves a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood.

The story touched me deeply. Psychologically clever observations give you insights to what a good relationship really needs: honesty

The story shows how pride and social restraints can destroy relationships step by step.
The story stayed exiting because it contained several unexpected surprises. There are also important feminist messages inside this book.

After some really sad parts I was happy with the bittersweet happy end.

Adjoa Andoh is an incredibly good narrator, I would always recommend you to listen to her !
