About the Book

Two ladies from sex-addict mothers in search of identity, two men - ignorant of their linked past - in a presidential race, two youth corps members vying for a prestigious service award, two brothers caught in a family vendetta, two ladies in love with one man, and two families on the run… Escape from the South chronicles the travails of members of a Nigerian family and their metamorphosis as they journey through poverty, politics, passion and violence that nearly submerge them into the dustbin of history. Their perseverance, survival instinct and quest for justice restore family pride and even rekindle the hope of societal rediscovery.
