Where the Waters Recede (A Novel)

A gorgeous riveting and heartbreaking novel that explores the stories of faith, intertwined destinies and filial piety captured in the spirit of one of Africa's cultural artefacts.


Omitirin, a young Yoruba priestess who is captured by Fulani bandits and sold into slavery, fights to return to her family. A ruthless warlord plots for more power and glory, and a heartbroken English missionary hopes for redemption in the dark African heartland. It is 1826, and the British have arrived. As their paths cross, all three struggle to make sense of their lives and this one article of faith while the old Oyo empire collapses around them.
