Narrator Ronke Adékoluejo masterfully creates a British-Nigerian community and its delightful inhabitants, especially 31-year-old Oxford-educated banker Yinka Oladeji. Listeners learn that Yinka is frustrated because her younger sister is married and pregnant, while Yinka is still saving herself for marriage and looking for a man who will appreciate her. Adékoluejo skillfully personifies endearing but insecure Yinka, her supportive friends, and her well-meaning but irritating mother and aunties, who pray for a successful husband search. Personalities, accents--Nigerian and London--and humorous and serious situations are enhanced by an ebullient yet thoughtful delivery. Impressive sound effects, such as email typing, texting, and pinging responses keep the story timely and flowing. Listeners will celebrate after Yinka realizes she needn't change herself to please anyone or to find a mate. S.G.B.
