“How far does friendship stretch? When Rekiya and Zaytunnah met as teenagers, neither had any inkling this would be the start a lifelong friendship.
That the bond they formed so young would see them through the best and worst of times. An unlikely alliance, Rekiya is the unacknowledged daughter of one of the country’s richest men while Zaytunnah is the Ibadan born and raised hijabi with a more modest background.
With time, both of them grow apart and go their separate ways. The strong bond they had shared during their early years has turned into a feeble friendship. Years later, a monumental loss tests the ties that bind them; in friendship, of family, of self and of healing. Set in Nigeria, this book explores the themes of time and it’s fickleness, trauma, loss, and the varying realities of Muslim womanhood.
