Posted on Location: 3 min read 3150 views

In Honey Butter Pig Bread by Francesca Ekwuyasi, we see how the truth can separate a family. The book is a total work of art, and I couldn’t put it down. At its core, it’s a story of twin sisters whose bond is deep and whose pain separates them both physically and emotionally. But truly it is a story of women who are hungry for connection and hungry for healing.  The book tells the story of three Nigerian women: Kambirinachi and her twin daughters, Kehinde and Taiye. Taking place in Nigeria, Canada, and Europe the book spans oceans and speaks to the power of love, bonds, and family ties.
