    Description

    Mama say: "Your schooling is your voice, child.

    It will be speaking for you even if you didn't open your mouth to talk.

    It will be speaking till the day God is calling you come."

    That day, I tell myself that even if I am not getting anything in this life,

    I will go to school and become Teacher.

    Because I don't just want to be having any kind voice....

    I want a louding voice.

    14-year-old Adunni has a dream: to be educated. But her father needs her bride-price, so sells his daughter to an older man, who demands she give him the fine boy-children his first two wives have failed to produce.

    When things go tragically wrong, Adunni flees to Lagos. It's what she has always wanted, to leave Ikati and see the world, and though her heart is full of sorrow for her lost family and the shame she has left behind, still Adunni will not be quiet and do as she's told.

    Sold again as a housemaid to a successful businesswoman, she continues to question all she sees: why Big Madam, in her big house, has a cage of sadness round her soul; what happened to Rebecca, the girl who worked in her place before; and whether it is possible, when you are born into a life of no money and plenty suffering, to become a somebody of value.

    Best book for 2020

    This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review and encourage potential readers to choose this extraordinary book to read. The storyline, the characters and the way it’s told all rolled into a magical experience!

    Brilliant!

    Wonderful story brilliantly read. Couldn't wait to listen whenever possible. Glad I chose to listen rather than read so I could wallow in the beautiful accent and language used by the main character.

    Five stars all the way. Absolutely loved it

    This was such a special book. Tender and heartwarming. But also humorous in parts. This is a book where a great narrator can take a book to a whole new level. This story will stay with me for a long time to come.

    Superb African Tale

    An engaging and moving naive story based in Nigeria, and exceptionally well narrated. Larger than life characters and a simple storyline makes for easy listening. Recommended 😀

    Best narration and true African voice

    Africa and its determined women are the true success of this Continent. Long may their Louding voices by heard until all of it's people are free.
