A Vulture 'Book We Can't-Wait to Read in 2022'From the 2014 Caine Prize winner comes an astonishing new novel, riven through with mystery and magic, about a daughter's quest to save her mother Manor Mabel Brown looms high over Mapeli Town, its rickety gate flanked by stone angels with severed heads, its yard full of tangled thorns and wildflowers. Inside these ramshackle walls lives Ayosa, twelve years old and the loneliest girl in the world. With her mother prone to frequent disappearances, Ayosa's only companions are the ghosts and spirits who wander through her Kenyan village.

She craves escape, but more than that she longs for the love of her fearsome mother, Nabumbo Promise. When a new friend arrives in the shape of Mbiu, Ayosa is forced to choose between protecting her mama and seizing a life of her own. Okwiri Oduor's stunningly original debut novel sings with Kenyan folklore and myth as it traces the fragile, intoxicating bond between a mother and daughter like no other.
