Publisher's Summary

Blessing and her brother Ezikiel adore their larger-than-life father, their glamorous mother, and their comfortable life in Lagos. But all that changes when their father leaves them for another woman: Their mother is fired from her job at the Royal Imperial Hotel - only married women can work there - and soon they have to quit their air-conditioned apartment to go and live with their grandparents in a compound in the Niger Delta. Adapting to life with a poor countryside family is a shock beyond measure after their privileged upbringing in Lagos.
Told in Blessing’s own beguiling voice and strikingly captured in Adjoa Andoh’s sensitive reading, Tiny Sunbirds Far Away shows how some families can survive almost anything. At times hilarious, always poignant, and occasionally tragic, this audiobook bursts with life and the voices of characters you will never forget.
