Yetunde: An Ode to My Mother
on March 29, 2016
This is a very sweet book that pulled at my heartstrings more than once. The book itself is very short, using two main chapters to convey the transcendence of maternal love throughout time and culture. It is written from the point of view of a 9-month-old baby who describes the love she has for her mother while her mother tells stories from Yoruba culture in Nigeria. A fascinating look into the legend of a mother who must fight a warrior to save her only daughter. Powerfully and poetically written. It is as if the phrase "do not come between a mother bear and her cub" is adapted to the reality and intensity of human maternal love.

This thrilling short story is a prequel by the same author for The Twins series. A woman struggles with amnesia while running for her life one minute, then trying to understand how she mysteriously ends up in somewhere else the next. Told in first person, this book provides vivid description of what the main character is thinking and feeling throughout. The story takes some intriguing turns and keeps you guessing til the end. Based on this teaser, I imagine this series will be very interesting. I was a little confused at the end when a different series excerpt was included in the back because I was interested to find out more about the series this prequel came from. A few spelling issues may be due to translation. Overall a wild story that makes you want to know what happens next.
