MY MOTHER AND I
By OLA OLAWALE
The Theme: The Story Of A Mother And Her Daughter Who Share Same Fate From Birth Till Death.
THE BIRTH OF OMOLARA
Omolara is the daughter of an orphan who walked into Mama Awosika restaurant some years back, looking dirty and unkempt.
Ever since her mother was adopted by Mama Awosika she lived with her and worked at her restaurant before one unfortunate morning.
LIFE IN THE RESTAURANT
Everything in the story began and ended with the restaurant. The restaurant played a major role in the story.
Every character in the book connected with the restaurant one way or the other. The restaurant was the rallying point in the storyline.
THE DEATH OF MAMA AWOSIKA
In life, only death is assured. In this chapter, Mama Awosika passed away and life in the restaurant changed with new leadership in place.
OMOLARA AND FRIENDS
The young shall grow. Omolara the daughter of Ebunoluwa, a child like her mother is now of age and began to walk the path of her destiny that defined the storyline; sharing same fate like her mother.
THE BEGINNING OF THE END
In this chapter, the signs of the unfortunate end of Omolara and her mother began to surface. If there will be fire there must first be a smoke. The sign was there but destiny can not be changed.
THE BAD LARA
What will be will be. Omolara’s mother did all she could do as a mother to avert the already predicted event. However, nothing can stop the will of the gods.
THE DEATH OF OMOLARA
The words of the gods must come to pass. Like cobra, like Ebunoluwa, the child of a cobra is always the cause of her death. Eventually, the fate of Ebunoluwa came to pass as predicted.
The Author used some events in the book to narrate the dilapidated state of our social institutions, the corruption in our security architecture and how power are used to prevent justice. Not leaving out the level of immorality among the young generation.
Thank you for going through the review. I hope you will find the book interesting.
