Things changed dramatically by the sudden death of her Father, Daddy did not write a will before his death because Chinedu the only Son did not come on time, he came as the seventh child. Uncle Amaechi took over Daddy's businesses as he was daddy's younger brother and the next of kin. The once united family was shattered like a flock of Sheep without a Shepherd. Mummy died in a psychiatric home, she lost her mind when she was accused and punished for the death of Daddy and with Uncle Amaechi taking possession of the only Son Chinedu and locking the Girls and their mother out of their family house. It was too much for her to bear. They abandoned School and relocated from their Duplex to a Batcha inside the 82 Division Army Barracks. Six jobless Sisters living beggarly in the Barracks, at the mercy or unruly military recruits. Derby dared to succeed against all odds, as an apprentice seamstress who also sells roasted maize along the road at nights; she must surmount obstacles to carve a niche for herself in other to save her family from servitude. But she has Caroline and Pauline to contend with! Her elder Sisters, who termed her a rebel because she dared to take her destiny in her hands. She needed to save her only brother Chinedu from the slavery uncle Amaechi had subjected him to in their Father's house. She found love in a young military Doctor, she lost love, She wished her love had listened to the warnings of the Ifa priest. She had a kiss with death and she was restless.
