Love Me Unconditionally by Ola Awonubi is set in London and Lagos and explores issues of family pressure and expectations. This Crazy Paradise takes place in South Africa and is the second in a series by Aziza Eden Walker, featuring characters from her previous novel The Seeing Place.
Ankara Press publishing director Emma Shercliff said:
“We are thrilled to be releasing two more Ankara novels and delighted that these are both by authors with whom we have worked already. True to the Ankara ethos, the books feature rather unconventional heroines – the first is a woman in her late thirties who is facing increasing pressure from her family to produce a child, the second a romance writer seeing solace on an island resort near Cape Town after a bruising divorce. Both are enormously entertaining, and feature characters whose lives are not as uncomplicated as those who often appear in romance novels. We want our books to reflect the reality of women’s lives, whilst also being engaging and uplifting reads.”
