Where Women are Kings

(2013)
A novel by

 
 
Elijah, seven years old, is covered in scars and has a history of disruptive behaviour. His adoptive mother Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to accept his difficulties - and that being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son.

Elijah's birth mother Deborah loves her son like the world has never known. Elijah thinks it's his fault they can't be together. Each of them faces more challenges than they could have dreamed, but just as Elijah starts to settle in, a shocking event rocks their fragile peace and the result is devastating.

From the Costa Prize-winning author of Tiny Sunbirds Far Away, this wonderful new novel is read by Adjoa Andoh, the award-winning voice of novels by Dorothy Koomson and Alexander McCall Smith.
