Rating: 3 Cups
Efe Sagay has built a life for herself after traveling to America and working hard in school. She has no current relationship, having recently ended the one that meant nothing to her. Her heart was broken long ago by Kevwe, her former fiancé, and now that she has moved back to Nigeria, she knows she is bound to run into him again. Will she be able to get past the hurt of yesterday and find the love she thought she lost?
Kevwe is heartbroken when he hears the woman who so long ago abandoned him in his time of need is now back in town. Efe was the one woman he ever really loved, and the passion he feels for her has not cooled in the time they have been apart. Will he be willing to hear of her innocence in their breakup? Or has too much water passed under the bridge?
Trying to resolve past misunderstandings, these two very strong characters remember when they first fell in love. But the memories, now so bittersweet, leave them both afraid to look to the future. Will they get past the old heartaches and find a love worth fighting for?
Told with the flavor of the author's native land, this story is riddled with phrases that probably ring familiar to anyone who has spent any time in the far off and lovely land of Nigeria. With mention of the political uprisings that still tear at this exotic locale, the story was full of flavor and passion. For a reader who has never traveled there, it can sometimes be a bit confusing as can the continued flashbacks and head hopping from the heroine to the hero. Altogether a lovely story, if a bit complicated to follow at points.
