Meet Kemi, a focused and career driven lady who’s on a mission—to have a baby at any cost. An accident induced miscarriage in the first year of marriage had left Kemi struggling to conceive and her mother-in-law who had never accepted Kemi as her son’s bride is mounting pressure. Desperate, Kemi accepts bad counsel and tries Surrogacy in a most unconventional way but the plan boomerangs, leaving in its wake misery, dejection, a murder case and ultimately the disintegration of the marriage union she had sought desperately to uphold. The Surrogacy Deal explores the pain and angst women trying to conceive go through in Nigeria and is told in a fun light-hearted way.

“What an amazing Book, I loved it and read it one one fell swoop. Very vivid and detailed, and one feels the plethora of emotions the protagonist goes through as she processes her childlessness and the fear of losing her husband, I also learnt a lot of lessons on of which is that patience is a virtue and one should trust and wait in God. Good work Barakat, I will be sure to read anything else you write.  Loved it” – Bisola
