Yemi Balsara is a drugs councilor in Nigeria. Her elder sister, Giselle was stolen as a nine year old child, causing Yemi’s mother to sink into severe depression. Yemi was born a year after Giselle disappeared, but the absence of her sister has deeply affected her family, even though Yemi does her best to relieve her mother’s pain, it is never enough. Bernadette leaves a candle burning in their window in the hope that one day Giselle will find her way home, but twenty years have passed and the old woman keeps waiting, leaving Yemi as her caretaker.

Are you going to write more about Yemi? I hope so.
She certainly deserves a second story. She’s a cool character! (She’s glad you like her, Miss Passé) Thank you.
Hi, Miss Passé. A second story to feature Yemi is being written. This time from the perspective of her mother, Bernadette. Thanks for suggesting it, I appreciate it.
Thank you, Cheryl! I will wait for that story. 🙂
