He Inadvertently Married His Mother (book) by OmoAlata(f): 8:11am On Feb 09, 2013
Can anyone remember the name of a book I read many moons ago? I'd love to read it again. I'll give you a snip of it. Basically, the King and Queen had a son but the oracle said he should be killed as he'll bring great pain to the village. They reluctanctly agreed and gave the baby to be slaughtered. Years later, the King dies and nearby villages/towns wage war against the village and always conquer them. The villagers weep and pray for a helper. Meanwhile, a young man hears of their calamity (or something to this effect), goes to that village and wins all their battle. They decide to make him their king despite opposition from some quarters that a stranger could not be their king. He marries the widowed Queen and life resumes. They have children. Then, things begin to happen in the village - sickness, death etc. They consult the oracle who says an abomination has been carried out etc etc etc. They later find out that the stranger is in fact the Queen's son. The man they gave the baby to, did not kill him but gave him away to a childless couple. When the Queen hears that she married her own son, she screams, "Ifa what are you doing to me" then she kills herself. It was a very interesting book.
