Season of Crimson Blossoms Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

An affair between 55-year-old widow Binta Zubairu and 25-year-old weed dealer Reza was bound to provoke condemnation inconservative Northern Nigeria.

Brought together in unusual circumstances, Binta and Reza faced a need they could only satisfy in each other.

Binta - previously reconciled with God - now yearns for intimacy after the sexual repression of her marriage, the pain of losing her first son and the privations of widowhood.

Meanwhile, Reza's heart lies empty and waiting to be filled due to the absence of a mother.

The situation comes to a head when Binta's wealthy son confronts Reza, with disastrous consequences.

This story of love and longing - set against undercurrents of political violence - unfurls gently, revealing layers of emotion that defy age, class and religion.
