Hannah Bailey only met her father once, when she was 8 years old. Since then, her relationship with the man has been completely nonexistent—until word reaches her of his death. With her mother’s encouragement, she flies to Nigeria, a place she’s never been, and finds herself intensely unprepared to deal with his family—her family, biologically speaking. The Jolades are one of the wealthiest and most prestigious families in the country, and not all of them welcome Hannah with open arms, but the first time she lays eyes on Lawrence, her late father’s protégé, the sparks are undeniable. Sticking around on Banana Island and getting to know the half siblings she never knew she had is an emotional journey all its own, especially when it comes to winning over the Jolades, who aren’t convinced she belongs. On top of that, Hannah finds herself newly shaped and redefined by a culture she’s always felt somewhat removed from, and she’s also opening up her heart for the first time in a long time—not just to the possibility of kindred, but romance, too. Igharo’s latest isn’t only a romance novel, however; it’s a story that delves into nearly every character’s perspective, carving out a richer narrative in the process. The book ultimately explores a wide range of love between people as well as strong themes of self-discovery and how blood ties aren’t always what connect members of a family to each other, with many emotional ups and downs along the way.
