Overview

There are two sides to every story…

In the sun-soaked capital of Ghana, best friends Theresa, Maku and Lyla struggle with the arrangements that define their relationships.

Ambitious, single-minded Theresa has gambled everything to move with her loving husband Tyler from London to cosmopolitan Accra. But when shocking developments threaten their plans, they also expose the hidden cracks in their fairytale marriage.

Feisty Maku is desperate for professional recognition – and her dream white wedding. But how long can she wait for her laid-back partner Nortey to stop dreaming up pointless projects from the comfort of his local bar and stand up to his family?

Churchgoing Lyla married Kwesi in haste, and six years later she is desperate for a child. But while she battles a vicious mother-in-law, and her growing attraction to the mysterious Reuben, her husband has bitten off more than he can chew with his latest mistress.

Facing lies, betrayal, and shattered illusions, each couple must confront the truth of who they have become and the arrangements they have enabled. Against the backdrop of a shifting culture, each woman must decide what – and who – she is willing to sacrifice for the perfect marriage.
‘Following three couples on the cusp of significant life changes, this charming romance… explores the difficulties of relationships at varying stages. Williams… weaves in vivid cultural details as she lifts the veil on the realities of marriage, the woes of infertility, and the strain of gender roles. Readers are sure to enjoy this uplifting work.’ Publishers Weekly
‘I very much enjoyed this brilliantly written novel.’ Dorothy Koomson
‘A witty, true, and, sometimes, heartbreaking portrayal of married life.’ Ayesha Harruna Attah
‘A celebration of sisterhood. You won’t want to put the story down till it ends.’ Chibundu Onuzo
