Short Description: Twice in my life, I’d been involved in terrible car accident which could have led to untimely death, but for the mercy of God only, it was prevented. And I was a terrible sinner then. I know you also can recall several instances in your life when God had prevented some bad things from happening to you. I also know that you can only attribute such deliverance to nothing but the Mercy of God. But friend, God wants each of us to move beyond this Common Mercy into enjoying the fullness of His Grace. That Saving Grace entered into my life while attending a 3-day prayer and fasting program as a visitor at the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Church, Karu, Abuja in 2009.The last cigarette I took the evening before the program was the last I had ever taken. That divine encounter led to terminating the 15 years of addiction to smoking and drinking of alcohol. Also two years after the program, I was delivered from 21 years of sleeplessness (also known as Insomnia). These all happened through the Grace of God and by the application of certain Biblical principles stated in this book. If the person follows these principles which led to the restoration of my battered destiny and currently giving my life stability and meaning, then such a person will surely in no distant time give a testimony. God is no respecter of persons, if HE has done it for me, HE can as well do it for anyone.

What is Not Yours is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi

View all books listed on New Books Nigeria

Title: What is Not Yours is Not Yours

Author: Helen Oyeyemi

Genre: Fiction (Short Stories)

Format: Paperback

Book Dimension: 5.5 X 8.4

Number of Pages: 352

Publication Year: March 8, 2016

Publisher: Riverhead Books

ISBN: 978-1594634635

Available at: Amazon Stores

Short Description: From the award-winning author of Boy, Snow, Bird and Mr. Fox comes an enchanting collection of intertwined stories.
 
Playful, ambitious, and exquisitely imagined, What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours is cleverly built around the idea of keys, literal and metaphorical. The key to a house, the key to a heart, the key to a secret—Oyeyemi’s keys not only unlock elements of her characters’ lives, they promise further labyrinths on the other side. In “Books and Roses” one special key opens a library, a garden, and clues to at least two lovers’ fates. In “Is Your Blood as Red as This?” an unlikely key opens the heart of a student at a puppeteering school. “‘Sorry’ Doesn’t Sweeten Her Tea” involves a “house of locks,” where doors can be closed only with a key—with surprising, unobservable developments. And in “If a Book Is Locked There’s Probably a Good Reason for That Don’t You Think,” a key keeps a mystical diary locked (for good reason).

Oyeyemi’s tales span multiple times and landscapes as they tease boundaries between coexisting realities. Is a key a gate, a gift, or an invitation? What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours captivates as it explores the many possible answers.

Short Description: ‘There are things even love can’t do . . . If the burden is too much and stays too long, even love bends, cracks, comes close to breaking and sometimes does break. But even when it’s in a thousand pieces around your feet, that doesn’t mean it’s no longer love . . .’

Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. It is all her husband wants, all her mother in-law wants, and she has tried everything – arduous pilgrimages, medical consultations, dances with prophets, appeals to God. But when her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear.

Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 80s Nigeria, Stay with Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings.

Ayobami Adebayo weaves a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood. This unforgettable novel set in Nigeria gives voice to both husband and wife as they tell the story of their marriage—and the forces that threaten to tear it apart. It is a tale about our desperate attempts to save ourselves and those we love from heartbreak.

The Port Harcourt Volunteer (Short title) by Sam Ohuabunwa

View all books listed on New Books Nigeria

Title: The Port Harcourt Volunteer: Experiences of a Young Combatant in the  Nigeria-Biafra War

Author: Sam Ohuabunwa

Genre: Non-fiction (Memoir)

Format: Paperback

Number of Pages: 118

Publication Year: July, 2015

Publisher: Kraft Books Limited

ISBN: 978-978-918-316-6

Available at: Amazon Kindle Store

Short Description: This book is essentially the story of the Nigerian political crisis which started with the January 15, 1966 military coup and resulted in the Nigeria-Biafra War (1967-1970). It is told from the perspective of a young combatant from the Biafran side and chronicles Sam Ohuabunwa’s experience from the day schools were shut because of the war, the duration of the war, and the day they were opened as the war ended. It portrays the various risks he undertook in his zeal to defend the Biafran cause as a soldier and the amazing miraculous deliverances he enjoyed. To many Nigerians who were distant from the war, to those too young to  remember or those not born during this crisis, this book gives a good account of what caused the war, how it was fought and how it was brought to an end. A very important and critical point made in his book is that though the war was like a kind of war of unity for Nigeria, the desired unity has not really been achieved. Nigerians are encouraged to take certain critical steps to seal and solidify  Nigeria’s unity, so that Nigeria will not fight another civil war, ever.
