Spirited and intelligent, Morayo grows up surrounded by school friends and family in Ibadan. There is Eniayo, her adoring little sister- for whose sake their middle-class parents fight stigmatising superstition- and a large extended family of cousins and aunts who sometimes make Morayo's home their own. A shameful secret forced upon her by Bros T, her cousin, thrusts Morayo into a web of oppressive silence woven by the adults around her. Morayo must learn to fiercely protect herself and her sister as young women growing up in a complex and politically charged country.

This story was one I liked, it wasn't so spectacular, but I can say I smiled quite a few times while reading it. The quotes at the beginning of each chapther were nice . Some events that took place were quite predictable, but the story was decent . A lot of people told me marvellous things about this book, so I guess I was a tad bit disappointed when I was done reading it. I guess that's why I gave it 3| 3.5 stars.
Oh before I forget, I recently discovered this lovely website http://africareeds.com/ They sell books ranging from fiction to business and finance. Their prices are both reasonable, affordable (in my opinion) and plus they deliver nationwide with different payment options like payment on delivery, which is very convenient. They are super awesome and their customer service is wonderful! I orderd a book about 2 weeks ago and you can too! Order a copy of Daughters Who Walk This Path now!
P.S: Check out my favourite quotes page. Have a lovely day xx
