Lilian Amah's MUST READ New Novel, Dreams Of Yesterday, Is Making Waves! Wow! See More Below...

Hot on the heels of her last best-selling novel, 'Echoes Of A Heartbeat', which was published in the UK and can still be purchased here and here
, actress and writer, Lilian Amah, returns with 'Dreams Of Yesterday', a thriller/suspense novel set in 1960s Nigeria. I have just finished reading this novel and hope that my verdict below aptly interpretes the euphoria I am still riding high on.

"This fast paced thriller exceeded my high expectations. The author's eloquent accounts of the main characters are skilfully interwoven, providing an interesting contrast between their perspectives and how the Civil war has impacted so drastically on their lives. There is also an interesting twist in events, which I will keep mum about, lest I spoil it for the next reader. The author’s wealth of knowledge, thorough research and engaging writing style come through on every page; and her ability to convey these insightful personal accounts is remarkable. Excellent reading"!


Civil war is devastating because it pits brother against brother. The Nigerian Civil war is particularly complicated because the Country has over 250 ethnic groups closely interwoven due to intermarriage.

In 'Dreams of Yesterday', the lives, loves, triumphs and trials of a bi-ethnic couple come under scrutiny.

Lekan Lawson loves his wife Ronke. Separated from her during the war and suffering amnesia, he meets and falls in love with another woman Ndidi. The war ends, he finds Ronke again and unable to let go of either woman, Lekan starts a love triangle that can only lead to disaster. Can one man love two women at the same time? Can a woman accept and learn to live with the knowledge that her husband loves her but also loves another woman?
It is not all good or bad. It is neither black nor white as shades of grey are everywhere.

'Dreams Of Yesterday' is live on Konga.com now. Please click here to purchase your copy. It will also soon be available for purchase on the websites of Jumia, Amazon and Amazon Kindle, respectively, so be on the lookout for updates.
