From author Jumoke Alli comes Madrigal (published by AuthorHouse), a page-turner novel, Madrigal follows the life of Aduke, a girl extraordinaire living in the picturesque village of Ajafigi in West Africa, who struggles to find love and normalcy. This book explores the African folklores and myths that has been handed from generation to generation and parlayed into a dexterously crafted story of love and mystery.
Aduke already knew from a very young age that she was different from any other girl. She possessed unbelievable powers that she could will whatever she wants into being or even end someone else’s life simply by wishing them dead. But instead of being fascinated by her abilities, she deliberately refuses to accept this special gift. She feels that acknowledging them will burden her with a responsibility that would surely lead to inevitable doom.
As she reaches adulthood, Aduke meets a wonderful friend who encourages her to accept her special powers, directing her down a path to fulfill her destiny. Trying to persuade Aduke, he realizes that she has every reason to be cautious. Her special abilities do come with a price: Her death and immortalization at the age of 25.
With Aduke’s 25th birthday fast approaching, will she find a way to change her destiny and embrace the man who has helped her discover her corporeal side? Readers can find out as they follow her on her courageous quest in the pages of Madrigal.
