In today’s Nigeria where most things are centered around money, a new novel explores the possibility of choosing to walk away from great wealth and a pretty girl, to engage on a missionary journey with no frills.
What would motivate a young, able-bodied man with a sound mind to make such a decision? How would his family and friends react? Is he able to get away with it?
The novel, “Unfolding Grace”, chronicles the story of Bayo Elvis John, the first of Sir Elvis John’s four children, and heir-apparent to his father’s multi-billion naira business empire.
Bayo’s choices are uncertain at first, as he wants to venture out on his own, to build his start-up business separate from his father’s empire.
He meets the beautiful and classy banker, Temisola Ibiyemi, and wants to get married to her by all means. A life-changing encounter occurs and his life purpose is totally redirected.
With his father breathing down his neck to get involved in the family business, and Temisola causing distractions in her own way, Bayo continues to be drawn to the unreached and lost souls in remote villages, forcing not only him but all the important people in his life to make difficult decisions.
When Sir Elvis John dies unexpectedly, the stakes become higher and Bayo runs out of time. What choices does he make and what happens next?
