Description

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.

Very Difficult but Unstoppable

 "Where Women are Kings" by Christie Watson provided for nonstop listening. Christie Watson writes compassionately about a very difficult subject - mental instability infused with cultural beliefs,  tradition, and subsequent irreconcilable approaches to life's conditions. She tunes finely into the West African experience at home and abroad. We are sincerely grateful for the opportunity to explore the Audible Library, and look forward to our next selections from her writings.

Touching story

The book unveils a touching story. Although the writing hasn't kept me fascinated, the storyline is still moving and thrilling.
