It is all her husband wants, all her mother-in-law wants, and she has tried everything.
But when her relatives insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 1980s Nigeria, Stay With Me is a story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the power of grief, and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood.
It is a tale about the desperate attempts we make to save ourselves, and those we love, from heartbreak.
