Wao. There are so many books to pick from starting from the children series in high primary and second school(Eze goes to school, Without a silver spoon, Akin the drummer boy, Second Chance etc. To contemporary ones like Arrow of God, The interpreter, And the man dead, Things fall apart, The Concubine, Our Husband have gone mad again, All the Pacesetters Series were lovely. I love the books by MEE( Mee Mofe Daminjo) particular the one love story she wrote regarding Sickle Cell Awareness. We sure did not some great writers.

Does any one have and idea about the title of a novel enter around a guy named Ola and a girl named Oni ( wherein n the guy is from a rich room and the girl is from AJ city. Met in the office elevator, she not knowing he is the boss's son and she a mere clerk. He couldn't get his mind of her etc. That one classic Nigeria Harlequin" romance. Who knows the author and title

Any question where can one get an e-edition of these classic books. I have checked on amazon but only a few can be bought.

Is the name of the novel, Second chance? The story of a girl from a very rich family, who gives birth to twin girls, one is named Miatta. Her mother's snottiness forces the husband to pack out of the family with one of the twins, (Miatta) whom she would reunite with seven years later. Yeah, the last name of the husband was "Essien."
