Love stories inspired by tales of the past....
Join debut author Bolu Babalola as she recreates the most beautiful love stories from history and mythology and retells them with incredible new detail and vivacity. Focusing on the magical folktales of West Africa, Babalola also reimagines iconic Greek myths, ancient legends from South Asia and stories from countries that no longer exist in our world. Babalola is inspired by tales that truly show the variety and colours of love around the globe.
A high-born Nigerian goddess feels beaten down and unappreciated by her gregarious lover and longs to be truly seen.
A young businesswoman attempts to make a great leap in her company and an even greater one in her love life.
A powerful Ghanaian spokeswoman is forced to decide whether to uphold her family's politics or to be true to her heart.
Whether captured in the passion of love at first sight or realising that self-love takes precedent over the latter, the characters in these vibrant stories try to navigate this most complex human emotion and understand why it holds them hostage.
Babalola takes a step in decolonising tropes of love by creating new stories that are inspired by the wildly beautiful tales that already exist in so many communities and cultures. Moving exhilaratingly across perspectives, continents and genres, from the historic to the vividly current, Love in Colour is a celebration of romance in all of its forms.
Get lost in these mystical worlds and see that love, like humanity, comes in Technicolor.

Such lovely Short stories
Lovely stories of love that left me all warm and smiley. Initially, I found it difficult to keep up with every new character but I eventually got a hang of it.
My favorite line in the book
“She (the author) is fascinated by how much love can soften a hard life, highlight the best of you and not condemn the worst of you.”
This line reminds me of what marriage means to me. Thank you Babalola for the lovely work you've put together.
