“'Haunting' and 'eye-opening' only begin to describe Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away. Blessing may only be 12 years old, but she speaks to us through her wise, yet innocent eyes about the upheaval of her family and her world in Nigeria. Forced from a comfortable urban setting in Lagos to the poverty-stricken, rural world of her mother's family, Blessing is without anchor except for the brother she would give her life for. This story of survival and the fight for dignity will linger long after you have finished reading.”
— Lynn Riggs, Books & Company, Oconomowoc, WI

Description


Twelve-year-old Blessing and her brother are forced to leave their home in Lagos to live with their mother's family in a small village. Blessing's grandmother soon becomes her mentor, teaching her the ways of the midwife in rural Nigeria.
