Below is an excerpt from the new novel by Myne Whitman who released ‘A Heart to Mend’ as her first novel. She is a Nigerian and believes in the use of the internet and social media to promote the book industry and literacy levels in the country. To this end, she facilitated the Publisher‘s Forum at the 2010 Garden City Literary Festival, Port Harcourt, Nigeria, on “Social Media and the Book Publishing Industry”. She is also the founder and managing editor of a critique and networking website, www.NaijaStories.com, for those that read, write or publish Nigerian stories.
“Efe returns to Nigeria after years in the United States, dreaming of an uncomplicated life. However, her nights become plagued by nightmares of Kevwe Mukoro, her ex-fiancé. Long hours at work and drinking in nightclubs only provide temporary relief, and when she encounters Kevwe’s twin brother, she knows it’s a matter of time before Kevwe is back in her life.
Sparks fly when they finally meet again, but desire is no match for bitter memories of heartbreak. All these years, Efe believed she was rejected; now Kevwe claims he’d never stopped loving her. Stuck at a crossroads, Kevwe prefers to look to the future, but Efe is not so sure. Can the traumatic events of the past be resolved, and will she give in to rekindled love?”
