“A good mother does not run from her child’s home. She always stays and fights.”
Titilope Ojo left Nigeria for the United States over a decade ago but her mother’s words are still fresh in her mind. When things begin to fall apart in her marriage, she tells herself she must stay for her son’s sake. Despite this resolution, things spiral out of Titilope’s control and she is forced to take charge of her own destiny. Chasing Butterflies is a courageous story about survival, change and the sometimes painful path to self-determination.
Proceeds from the sale of this edition of Chasing Butterflies will benefit Worldreader and the Working to Advance African Women (WAAW) Foundation.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Yejide Kilanko was born in Ibadan, a sprawling university city in south-western Nigeria. She read just about anything she could lay her hands on and that love for reading led her to poetry writing when she was twelve. It was the best way she made sense of the long, angst-filled teenage and young adult years that followed.
After a big, loud, African wedding, she joined her husband in Maryland, USA. For a decade she stayed home to raise their three children, moved to Canada and went back to school to become a social worker.
Yejide started writing her debut novel, Daughters Who Walk This Path, in 2009 and it was published in Canada (2012) and in the USA (2013). Prior to 2009, she didn’t think she could write a novel, so she’s living proof that life can bring new dreams when least expected.
Yejide currently lives in Chatham, Ontario, where she’s working hard on her next book
