One is Enough is a fictional story written by Flora Nwapa, one of Nigeria’s pioneering woman novelist. It is a powerful and compelling story of one woman’s struggle to find an independent and fulfilling life of her own.

After six years of happy, though childless marriage, Amaka, at thirty, is shattered to discover that her husband plans to take another wife – a woman who has already borne him two sons in secret. She makes a brave decision. Rather than stay in the comfort and security of her marital home, she will go to Lagos and try to make a fresh start in life.
