To Dance With Shadows is a historical romantic tragedy set in the fictitious village of Ihuowere in Nigeria. Olachi goes through a life changing experience as she is earmarked at the very young age of ten to be a wife to the gods. There is an ongoing battle between the old ways and the new. A young, daring priest intervenes and boldly challenges the gods. The inhabitants of Ihuowere are thrown into confusion as to the way forward. The fearless ones follow the young priest and the new religion while those ingrained in the old ways remain unfazed.
Time folds in on itself and the years roll by. Unoaku meets and falls in love with Ateke but tragedy strikes their lives two days after their wedding. Will the sins of the fathers be visited on the sons? Was the accident a mere fluke or a brutal reminder of the past? Have the gods waited patiently to probably take their revenge on the next generation? Who lives? Who dies? Only God or the gods can tell.
