Based on an actual dream of author Sinmisola Ogunyinka, Scent of Water is a romantic novel that tells a tale of love and fate. A dream turned a worrisome burden that timid, quiet and solitary paediatric surgeon Esam Bassey, found disturbing. She had thought her life was complete with a house of her own, a good job and a children's ministry. But her seemingly serene life was rudely jolted to awakening when prisoner Mike Dabi appears in her dreams. Troubled and confused, Esam sets out to discover its meaning and finds love in the most unlikely place. Scent of Water is a compelling account of two wounded hearts trying to find their way through adversity to a fulfilled destiny.
