Synopsis

Love stories inspired by tales of the past...


Join debut author Bolu Babalola as she retells the most beautiful love stories from history and mythology with new incredible detail and vivacity. Focusing on the magical folktales of West Africa, Babalola also reimagines iconic Greek myths, ancient legends from South Asia, and stories from countries that no longer exist in our world. Babalola is inspired by tales that truly show the variety and colours of love around the globe.


A high-born Nigerian goddess feels beaten down and unappreciated by her gregarious lover and longs to be truly seen.


A young businesswoman attempts to make a great leap in her company, and an even greater one in her love life.


A powerful Ghanaian spokeswoman is forced to decide whether to uphold her family's politics, or to be true to her heart.


Whether captured in the passion of love at first sight, or realising that self-love takes precedent over the latter, the characters in these vibrant stories try to navigate this most complex human emotion and understand why it holds them hostage.


Bolu takes a step in decolonising tropes of love by forming new stories from the wildly beautiful tales that already exist in so many communities and cultures. Moving exhilaratingly across perspectives, continents and genres, from the historic to the vividly current, Love in Colour is a celebration of romance in all of its forms.


Get lost in these mystical worlds and see that love, like humanity, comes in technicolour.
