Short Description: Nigerian businessman Robert Akinyemi Edward has already agreed to postpone his retirement once to assist Adilax, a multinational oil company, amid the worsening crisis in the Niger Delta. With just three days left in his deferment, he settles into a chair in a hotel lounge. Moments after he receives an urgent phone call, he frantically races to the Abuja airport to catch the last flight to Warri. There is no time to waste: a member of the Itsekiri royal family has been abducted from the house of Macpherson Douglas, an Adilax staff member. With Princess Alero Mayuku missing and Douglas in trouble with the police, Robert soon finds himself immersed in tense negotiations involving several conflicting groups. But when Douglas and the police officers who take him in for questioning suddenly disappear, Robert must initiate his own search operations to find the princess-rumored to be a captive of Ijaw militia boys-and Douglas. But as Robert is about to discover, there are those who will stop at nothing to stand in his way. In this political and social thriller, a Nigerian businessman is drawn into centuries-old conflicts as he attempts to rescue an abducted princess and elude those who hunt him.

Title: Dreams of Yesterday

Author: Lilian Uchenna Amah

Genre: Fiction

Format: Paperback/E-book

Book Dimension: 5.5 x 8.5

File Size (E-book): 658 KB

Number of Pages (Paperback): 208

Publication Year: June 30, 2015

ISBN: 978-978-918-246-6

Available at: Amazon.com  and in bookstores at University of Ibadan bookshop, Booksellers Limited, and bookshops nationwide.

Short Description: Dreams of yesterday examines the horror of the Nigerian Civil War and its aftermath through a story of love, sacrifice and death. It chronicles the lives of Captain Lekan Lawson, a young man fighting on the Nigerian side, and Nnena, a Biafran, who loses all she has in the war. It is fate that brings them together and war that tears them apart. Beyond the love story, Amah generally employs pathos to project the evils of war.

Although she uses history to gain leverage through language and plot, Amah is not a crusader fighting on one side of the divide. If anything, she focuses on the ordinary lives destroyed, the lives thrown into trauma beyond the trenches and away from the battleground and those who carry the scars of war in their hearts.

Dreams of Yesterday  is racy, full of suspense and leaves the reader yearning for more.

This is the price of entry to the school’s effort at winning a French song competition, instigated by the charismatic Mr Success.

We immerse ourselves into his chaotic and exciting life. The mesmerizing smile of Nneka, Obioma’s childhood sweetheart, adventures with Kalu, his best friend and possibly the cleverest person in the universe. Then the rural village, Umuwe, from which Obioma’s family hails. There his uncle, Iwuagwu, a traditional healer, starts to initiate Obioma into the centuries’ old profession of traditional medicine, promising to pay for contemporary medical studies later, so Obioma can combine traditional and western doctoring skills.

However, over the course of two decades tectonic plates move, and on a pivotal day Obioma joins one of the swelling crowds of hundreds marauding through the city with toppled burning cars lit up in their wake. Obioma, spade in hand, has become a truth-seeker. Who knows where the bodies are buried?
