‘A Taste of Hunger’ provides a revealing look at life in Nigeria for those struggling to make a living.
Lola is a young girl growing up in poverty, with an abusive father, no women’s rights, and a future that is full of uncertainty.
Unexpectedly, young Lola is given a ticket to freedom – a new life in France, the New World – only to find to her shock, that she has been sold as a sexual slave, to a cold, domineering Parisian! The dream becomes a nightmare.
She finally escapes his clutches, only to later have the two women she loves and trusts betray her. Now she must make her way, pregnant and alone, without funds, in a strange and often hostile world.
The story reveals her inner thoughts and feelings about her difficult life, and her indomitable spirit. This is the true story of two women’s journeys, blended into one.
This is Princess Ayelotan’s second book. Her first novel – ‘Shadow of the Sun’ was published in 2007.
