At the ripe old age of 12, Michael Ajose knows what he has to do – find a wife. He sets about doing this with all the vigour of a ‘man’ his age, awakening to a second dream – to become a sailor and someday Captain of his own ship. His search for a companion might have taken a few more years and tears than he imagined; but meeting Lami George at the end of it makes it worthwhile. Michael pursues Lami with a fervency which terrifies and entices her, sweeping her into this all-consuming affair, buffeted on many sides by the winds of fate. A story that begins in the pre-military era of Nigerian history, spanning governments and continents, The Voyage of Saints chronicles a young couple’s quest to find happiness and release from the harrowing circumstances that beset them. As they stand together against all the forces determined to keep them apart, their love is tested by elements unimaginable.
