Publisher's Summary

In the early 60s, Tayo Ajayi sails to England from Nigeria to take up a scholarship at Oxford University. There he discovers a whole generation high on visions of a new and better world. He meets Vanessa Richardson, the beautiful daughter of a former colonial officer. Their story, which spans four decades, is a bittersweet tale of a brave but doomed affair and the universal desire to fall truly, madly, and deeply in love.

A lyrical and moving story of unfulfilled love fraught with the weight of history, race, and geography and intertwined with questions of belonging, aging, faith, and family secrets, In Dependence explores the complexities of contemporary Africa, its Diaspora, and its interdependence with the rest of the world.
