Zikora by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

A mother needs a mother. When Zikora, a DC lawyer from Nigeria, tells her equally high-powered lover that she’s pregnant, he abandons her. But it’s Zikora’s demanding mother, in town for the birth, who makes Zikora feel like a lonely little girl all over again. As she reflects on her mother’s painful past, Zikora begins to understand what her own mother wants for her, for her new baby, and for herself.
