Scars Do Heal
In a chain of events, Omoye is married off at an early age, her much loved brother dies suddenly, and her four children are left motherless. Tayo (the only boy among the four) is at the centre of a bitter dispute between his grandparents and his father over his primary school education. His sisters are even less fortunate as their potential for getting any education is dismissed. Tayo is determined to make it in life but his resolve to succeed is often met with problems. He defies his father's instructions and as a consequence of his stubbornness, he is humiliated, abandoned, and grieving. When he thinks his ambition has come to a dead end, fate and politics intervene. What good will Omoye's sudden reappearance do? What secrets does she carry? Is it too late for reconciliation?
