The author explains, “Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse after coming out of a difficult and painful childhood, growing up with a single mother, being abused and blamed for it, and having no father figure in my life, my husband was deported to Nigeria, and I was left with nowhere to turn.”

She traveled with their 5-year-old daughter to a land she thought offered only hardships, and ended up embracing the Nigerian culture while settling in Jos, Nigeria.
