'Everything Good Will Come' by Sefi Atta

This novel takes a look at Nigeria's volatile political atmosphere (and the collateral damage it has incurred on family units), feminism and relationships from the point of view of Enitan, a young girl who matures into a mother through the course of the book.

Enitan maneuvers through life, taking on the effects of her parents' unstable marriage, of the rape of her best friend, of a devastating heartbreak, each circumstance building up to an ultimate decision.

Everything Good Will Come is riveting, beautifully written, tragic, but leaves the reader with a glimmer of hope. I fell completely in love with Atta reading this book.
