At the sudden death of her grandfather, Ona’s pain drives her to mystical Luenah — a place of infinite possibilities. There, she discovers she is an Eri, chosen to accomplish a special purpose on earth, and is handed a box in exchange for what she desires the most.


Burdened by her quest, Ona learns that dreams carry a hefty price, and no one is who they seem. As evil looms, she must unmask the villain and save the one she loves, even at the risk of losing everything she holds dear.


Set against the backdrop of two warring towns, The Place Beyond Her Dreams delivers life lessons using a powerful fable. This coming-of-age fantasy takes the reader on the path to self-discovery and demonstrates the transformation one must go through to realize and eventually occupy their purpose.

A Beautiful, Nuanced Love Story

"I loved the characters in this heart-tugging story, about love, life, fears, family, dreams and everything in between. It is told in a very liberating, simple, honest manner. Set in Paris and London in the nineteen sixties, within the backdrop of the Nigerian civil war, it captures the sophisticated way of life of Nigerians before the war and provides insight into what occurred in that time period without making the war a central focus –rather the characters.

This is a story of courage and trying to find your voice in spaces where your voice may often be tuned off/down and never amplified enough for what you truly want, need and desire. I found myself rooting for the main character. She is any girl, past, present and future. She sought to find/embrace her voice, make her own mistakes and also rise from them, on her own terms."
