Whether you are a Nigerian or not, whether you have ever travelled to Nigeria or not, this novel will draw you into what it is like growing up in that great though imperfect country where your chances of succeeding in life depend so much on the hand dealt you by your family and the education system.
The author takes up issues of global themes like family and divorce; polygamy and discipline; sex and power; failure and success; love and neglect; violence and forgiveness and hard work and rewards. These are all treated honestly and with a lightness of touch that belies their seriousness.
Scars Do Heal is a good story with plenty of depth and it is not overly sentimental. This suspenseful and encouraging narrative is a compelling read for reawakening, knowledge and fun. Scars Do Heal is a ‘must read’ for all lovers of great works of fiction. The tale is an encouragement to keep hoping for a brighter future because scars can heal.
The novel is now available for purchase on Amazon in kindle and paperback versions. Buy, read, enjoy and learn. Please, do not forget to leave your comments on Amazon.
