    The Nigerwife: A Novel

    May 2024

    Nicole Oruwari has the perfect life: a handsome husband, a palatial house, and a glamorous group of friends. She is a Nigerwife—a community of foreign women married to Nigerian men. But when Nicole disappears without a trace, the cracks in her so-called perfect life start to show. As the investigation turns up nothing but dead ends, her auntie Claudine decides to take matters into her own hands. Armed with only a cell phone and a plane ticket to Nigeria, she digs into her niece’s life and uncovers a hidden side filled with dark secrets, isolation, and even violence. But the more she discovers about Nicole, the more Claudine’s own buried history threatens to come to light.
