Half of a Yellow Sun

Half of a Yellow Sun - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie This is the story of the Nigerian civil war, seen through the eyes of two sisters, a servant and a quiet Englishman. As the civil war takes over their lives, they are pushed and pulled in all different directions, have to move to avoid the violence that seems to pursue them across the country.
