Notes

Description
"For as long as she can remember, Patience Adewale has been waiting for confirmation that she is loved, that there is a place where she truly belongs. The eldest daughter of Chief Kolade Adewale, Patience lives a sheltered life in Ibadan, but within the walls of their mansion, her distant father and stepmother Modupe offer no comfort. Her only ally in the house is her younger sister, Margaret, but Margaret can only do so much. More than anything, Patience wants to know why her father and uncle kicked her mother out of their compound so many years ago--and whether her mother is even alive. Answers begin to trickle in when she moves to Lagos for university, where, during her desperate search for her mother, she reconnects with her cousin Kash. Kash and his friend Emeka are petty thieves faced with the opportunity to make some real money. However, they need help. Kash and Emeka determine that Patience and Emeka's straight- arrow brother, Chike, would be the perfect partners in their scheme... The plan is to quit after one last job, but will everything go vawry? Patience won't have to wait any longer, but she must pay a price that may be too steep even for her. Suspenseful and evoking the subtleties of Nigerian life in a new way, Patience Is a Subtle Thief is an immersive debut from a fresh new voice in fiction"--,Provided by publisher.
