Soon after arriving in Paris in 1963, Nfudu launches a heart-rending secret affair with her best friend's attractive father – Javier. But, her parents reject Javier because of his race. When she meets Ikechi – a striking financier, in London, Nfudu's bond with Javier is tested. Ikechi seems like the perfect match, but a grim revelation about his 'caste' forces Nfudu's father to defend his honor. Torn between her insatiable love for Javier and burning desire for Ikechi, Nfudu takes matters into her own hands. Her actions send her down a slippery slope that threatens not only her own existence but also that of those closest to her.
Suspenseful and riveting, Nfudu is the story of a young woman during one of the most perilous times in history. It intricately weaves plots of love, war, crime, hatred, ancient taboos, and a clash of civilizations then merges these into one powerful story.

The work is a masterpiece. The story flowed like a river and made a very interesting reading. It is impossible to put down and do other things until one has completed reading. I fell in love with the characters in this story about Nfudu - a young woman who moves to Paris in the early nineteen sixties to start a career in fashion. She gets entangled in a love triangle even though that was not the main focus of the story. Her journey to succeed in both love and life took me on a ride as it draws attention to so many important issues such as class, culture, race, crime, etc. It makes really intriguing reading.
