Summary
"When a woman travels to Nigeria to attend the funeral of the father she never knew, she meets an over-the-top family, a new love interest, and discovers parts of herself she didn't know were missing in this engrossing novel from Jane Igharo, the acclaimed author of Ties That Tether. Hannah Bailey has never had a relationship with her father, the Nigerian businessman who had a fling with her white mother, so she's always felt clueless about part of her identity. When her father dies, she's invited to Nigeria for the funeral. Though she wants to hate the man who abandoned her, deep down she can't help feeling curious about where he was from and what he was like. Searching for answers, Hannah boards a plane to Lagos, Nigeria. In Banana Island, one of Nigeria's most affluent areas, Hannah meets the Jolades, her late father's prestigious and famed family--some who accept her and some who think she doesn't belong. But in the chaotic days leading up to the funeral, Hannah is shaped by a family she never thought she would have, a culture she never thought she would understand or appreciate, and a love interest who makes her see herself in a new light"--
