Dele Weds Destiny

In this delightful debut from Tomi Obaro we meet Funmi, Enitan, and Zainab, best friends from their college days, whose lives have taken them down three very different paths that have at times tested those bonds that formed. Yet despite the various challenges each has endured, their friendship has remained, and in this novel the three are reunited for the wedding of Funmi’s daughter Destiny. Few will be able to read this story without nodding and smiling, recognising parts of their own story and relationships. Obaro has a brightness and joy to her writing that draws the reader into the fascinating lives of her characters. At times funny, at times heartbreaking, this book brings a refreshing take on the stories of friendship, and of mothers and daughters. Recommended by Hannah
