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.
