What inspired ‘The Beautiful Branch’?
God is the source of my inspiration for writing The Beautiful Branch. I believe strongly that He is the One who through His Spirit sensitised my heart and placed the burden for seeing women live balanced lives in me. I get agitated when I see women who have issues with successfully joggling their responsibilities without any aspect lagging behind or who refuse to live to their full potentials just because they are females. I just know that it is very possible to be a woman that fears God and be one who lives purposefully in all aspects of her life. I decided to write this book to pass that message across. As a matter of fact, I had an idea of what I wanted to write about and the book title seven years before I began writing it.

I can’t wait to get back to school. I do miss you so much. How are you? No doubt as great as ever. Remind me to tell you all about my home. It isn’t as exciting as yours. I have lied a lot.
Should I tell you this? Yes! I was betrothed last week to an Alhaji. But I’ll finish schooling no doubt. Just thought I should reply your letter. Words are limited. See you at school.

(1973. Somewhere in Southern Nigeria)
She was hysterical. None could calm her down. She threw fists with unexpected strength for a girl in her condition and escaped the firm grip of the guard, placed in front of the hut. Like a squirrel, she ran and almost left the wind behind. The guard couldn’t catch up with her but he kept the motion, hoping she wouldn’t emerge out of the bushes, as her figure gradually disappeared from his sight.
But she wasn’t heading for the path that linked to the main road. She knew the shorter way; they took it on that day and she hasn’t forgotten the path. She stopped to catch her breath and her eyes darted behind to confirm she had lost the guard. All of a sudden she collapsed.
