When her minor children are snatched from her custody and whisked to Nigeria by their father on his first visitation with them following an acrimonious divorce, a mother is left to make sense of the betrayal and to determine a course of action in response. In her memoir, the author uses journal entries and correspondence – before the advent of e-mail, texts, and tweets – to tell the story of her attempt to recover from a destructive marriage and to bring the children home, while trying to create a life for herself separate and apart from them, in the face of overwhelming despair.
