Where the Children Take Us

This spellbinding memoir opens with a woman receiving shattering news that her husband and son have been in a terrible accident. In that instant, she becomes a widowed immigrant left to raise four children in a London neighbourhood beset by poverty and crime.

Her struggle awakens an inner strength which – coupled with the rituals of radical mothering from her village – lead to the family’s salvation. The fierce parenting style she adopts ultimately produces an Oscar-nominated actor, an Oxford-educated CNN anchor, a doctor and a successful entrepreneur.

Where the Children Take Us is the story of a woman who battled genocide, famine, poverty and crushing grief to rise from war-torn Africa to the streets of South London and eventually the drawing rooms of Buckingham Palace. It paints an unforgettable portrait of strength, tenacity and love – and is a testimony to the sacrifices Nigerian parents make to raise successful children.
