The Broken Bond
Belinda is thrown into a serious dilemma when her beloved mother dies in a ghastly and fatal motor accident. She has no choice but to take on the role of “breadwinner” for her family, as her father is always too drunk and confused to keep a job.
The events in Belinda's life force her to choose between her own education and that of her younger brother, Johnbull's. She sacrifices hers for her brother's, as she must trade and find the money, not only to keep her family alive and pay her brother's school fees, but also to pay rent to a greedy and lecherous old Chief Ojo, their landlord. The Chief has eyes, not only for her money, but also for much more!
How will Belinda balance the strict principles her late mother imbibed in her and her family's dire need for survival?
“This story is heart-rending and so true in many a Nigerian girl's life! Superbly told, racy and enchanting” – The Guardian, Nigeria, 2001.
