The son of the house

Onyemelukwe-Onuobia, Cheluchi, 1978-2021
In the city of Enugu in the 1970s, young Nwabulu dreams of becoming a typist as she endures the endless chores she is tasked with by her employers. She's been a housemaid since the age of ten, but she is tall and beautiful and in love with a rich man's son. Educated and privileged, Julie is a modern woman. Living on her own, she is happy to collect the gold jewellery love-struck Eugene brings her, but has no intention of becoming his second wife. When, years later, dramatic events straight out of a movie force Nwabulu and Julie into a dank room, the two women relate the stories of their lives as they await their fate.
