Being Mummy and Me is a non-fiction book on how women can balance their individuality as a young married parent in different phases of life. From keeping relationships with our spouse, extended family and friends, to loving ourselves and pursuing our goals both in academics and career. It is punctuated with stories from real parents on funny things children do. Ann Esievoadje pulls from her experience as a mother of two sons to share life lessons learned along the way. Her love for stories is evident in the other books she has authored - The Quilt, Troubled Horizon and Other stories and Parents and Children.
Troubled Horizon and Other Stories is a collection of five intriguing stories about kidnapping, fear of loss, accidental death and a twist of fate from Ann Esievoadje who has been described as a visionary writer. Leap into the world of the unique characters in each story and discover if there is really ‘Jollof at the end of every reception.’ Ann Esievoadje is a prolific fiction author and an amazing inspirational writer. Her other works include The Quilt (a collection of fiction stories available here on Okadabooks), Being Mummy and Me (non-fiction) and Parents and Children (non-fiction).
The Quilt is a collection of fictional stories of different genres. Each story is tailored to leave readers pondering on the deep underlining issues encapsulated within. It is an easy read and warms the heart. Here is what a fellow reader had to say of it: The Quilt is a beautiful read. I enjoyed it. I finished it in one day with random breaks in between. I kept looking forward to the next story. Here are my thoughts on the specific stories: The Sacrifice - Nollywood Ojuju Story; Ivie - Friendship story (I love Ivie). Before The Tunnel - good. In Retrospect - Very Entertaining and Vivid. Miss Lover girl. Time Up - Shuddering Things. Life Behind the Family Portrait - DEEP. DEEP. DEEP. Dramas: First Visitor - MY FAVOURITE. It made me think.
