This is a decent one from Buchi Emecheta. This book is not as good as the likes of In the Ditch and Kehinde or even The New Tribe, but it is decent enough. It is a short and simple novel that explores the complex issues around modern and traditional roles and expectations in relationships.

It exposes the hypocrisies inherent in the expectations placed on females while highlighting the double yoke placed on the shoulders of those who want to fulfil both expectations without a willingness for compromise.
