Title: Dreams of Yesterday

Author: Lilian Uchenna Amah

Genre: Fiction

Format: Paperback/E-book

Book Dimension: 5.5 x 8.5

Number of Pages (Paperback): 208

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.

Short Description: Unfolding across three continents this story traces one man’s unusual way of coming home to Africa, re-establishing his roots and finding true love while overcoming extreme danger in Nigeria. A modern day cross between James Hadley Chase and Wilbur Smith, the saga unfolds at breakneck speed through the eyes of the author in a witty narration about an ex-Marine’s unwilling role as a hero as he takes on Boko Haram’s expansion in the deepest part of Africa’s most populous nation. Told in an honest and insightful way, as only a true son of the soil can, the narrative is painstakingly researched and a wonderful testimony of good persevering over bad, despite insurmountable odds and Man’s continued wickedness to others. You won’t put it down.
