Yejide and Akin have been married since they met and fell in love at university. He and Yejide have always agreed that polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage, Yejide is still not pregnant. Then Akin's family brings a young woman they introduce as Akin's second wife. Furious, shocked, and livid with jealousy, Yejide knows the only way to save her marriage is to get pregnant. Which, finally, she does--but at a cost far greater than she could have dared to imagine.
