This is a heart-warming story about the power of a mother's love; truly an ode to women and mothers all over the world. It is a captivating and emotional story that talks about love and loss!

Follow Yetunde as she narrates her mother's ode to her grandmother. It is the Yoruba praise poetry for a mother known as Oriki Iya. Yetunde is also thrilled and delighted by the ancient Yoruba tale passed down to her by her mother about Labak?, a young maiden who was kidnapped to be forced to marry a warrior king. Will Iya Labak? save her child in time? Is Iya Labak? just a simple defenceless mother? Or . . . ?

This is a short story dedicated to past, present and future mothers, a perfect Mother's day present!

The book is mostly in English and all Yoruba words are translated, so everyone can enjoy the book fully.
