First published in march 2018.


Nno’lai encounters severe agonies during her widowhood because of the diabolic manipulations of Zuyeali. Nno’lai maintains her innocence, but for how long can she cope with the evil pangs of a dysfunctional family?

The story showcases the migratory, sociocultural, socioeconomic and sociopolitical history of Bassa-Nge/Nupe people, who currently reside in Lokoja, Bassa, Dekina and Ajaokuta in North Central Nigeria.

Zuyeali is the antagonist(villain).

Kòbo is the husband of Nnò-lai. He played significant roles in the novel.

Ampkitò is the husband of Zuyeali.

Nimmò is the fiancee of kòbo and gbomgbo(bambara nut cake) seller.

Bologi is the first son of Nnò-lai.He is fondly called"fish boy",because he has so much passion for fishing.

Mòpa is a cousin brother of Bologi.

Gimba is the son of a merchant.

Ndako is a storyteller and the oldest man in the village.He tells his stories at night.

The novel is melancholic,although I used comic relieve;which is the inclusion of humorous characters and scenes to relieve the readers from tension.
