"Scorching, gripping, ultimately lovely" (Margaret Atwood)
"This terrific first novel (shortlisted for the Baileys women's prize for fiction) deals with the daily stresses of living with the political upheavals of the time but the real drama is happening in Yejide's womb. Adebayo unfolds the many layers of truth with insight and skill" (The Times)
"A thoroughly contemporary style that is all her own . . . clever and funny . . . despite the intense sadness of her subject matter, she has produced a bright, big-hearted demonstration of female spirit, as well as the damage done by the boundlessness of male pride" (Guardian)
"One of the must-reads books of the year so far: Stay With Me has it all, including big themes of love, grief and jealousy, a fantastic female protagonist plus it reads like a page-turning thriller" (Stylist)
"Affecting and powerful . . . Adebayo's prose is a pleasure: immediate, unpretentious and flecked with whip-smart Nigerian-English dialogue" (Sunday Times)
"This deeply impressive novel of infertility, loneliness and longing is the first by the hotly-tipped Adebayo and it packs a tremendous punch" (Daily Mail)
"This confident and fearless writer challenges us to think about marriage from all perspectives in her first novel . . . Stay With Me is the closely observed, heartbreaking and original tale of the desperate attempts we make to save ourselves from severing the very bonds that make us" (ELLE)
"This impressive debut creates, in deceptively simple prose, a portrait of a marriage in crisis in a deeply patriarchal and oppressive society" (Mail on Sunday)
"This tale of a Nigerian couple under familial pressure to conceive is a subtle and unsentimental triumph . . . A tale of real complexity and humanity, part psychological observation and social study" (Financial Times)
"Beautiful and resonant . . . I was entranced" (Grazia)
This Nigerian debut, shortlisted for the 2017 Baileys Prize, is the heart-breaking tale of what wanting a child can do to a person, a marriage and a family; a powerful and vivid story of what it means to love not wisely but too wellSee all Product description

There is a lot of sadness here and feelings of despair and hopelessness,which could make the reader lose heart.
A very sudden and abrupt but conciliatory ending, which however reconciles tragedies that have occurred earlier in the book.
I would recommend this book for adults.
It was well written and compelling to read, particularly in the opening chapters.
The insight into cultural beliefs, prejudices and personal pain were described in a vivid and moving way.
The political background of the country added additional dimension to understanding these courageous people.
Would read it again.
