    Yejide and Akin have been married since they met and fell in love at university. Though many expected Akin to take several wives, he and Yejide have always agreed: Polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage - after consulting fertility doctors and healers, trying strange teas and unlikely cures - Yejide is still not pregnant. She assumes she still has time - until her family arrives on her doorstep with a young woman they introduce as Akin's second wife.

    Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. When her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. It will lead to jealousy, betrayal and despair. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of '80s Nigeria, Stay with Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings. Ayobami Adebayo weaves a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood.

    Yejide hofft auf ein Wunder. Sie will ein Kind. Ihr geliebter Mann Akin wünscht es sich, ihre Schwiegermutter erwartet es. Sie hat alles versucht: Untersuchungen, Pilgerreisen und Stoßgebete - vergeblich. Dann nimmt ihre Schwiegermutter das Heft in die Hand und stellt Akin eine zweite Frau zur Seite. Eine, die er nicht liebt, aber die ihm ein Kind schenken kann. Dabei haben sich Akin und Yejide dagegen entschieden, eine zweite Frau in die Ehe zu holen - entgegen der nigerianischen Sitten. Doch jetzt ist sie da, und Yejide voller Wut und Trauer. Um ihre Ehe zu retten, muss sie schwanger werden. Aber um welchen Preis?
