I’m so glad you reviewed this book Elise. This is such a beautiful love story. Ifemelu is a truly modern woman, never changing her future plans for anyone. She moves onward with her life and career in the US, leaving Obinze behind.

I think what I liked the most was that Ifemelu never minces her words when it comes to race or racism. She says what we all know to be true but would never have the guts to say.
