Good morning, Bookaholics. Today I bring you a different book, which is packed full of inspiring stories from Nigeria. Whilst this isn't the sort of book I usually read or review, I was intrigued enough to want to read it.
Stories From the Heart by Olusola Sophia Anyanwu is essentially a book which teases out life's issues through the medium of story, an example being the story of a promiscuous lecturer and a young female student. This allows the reader to examine their own heart in response to the stories. Each story covers a different topic, each of which has an associated bible verse. This is a Christian book meant for a Christian readership and each story comes from a Christian viewpoint.
The book is written in Nigerian English which I initially struggled with, however, the stories themselves carried me through as the storytelling is strong and the stories interesting and very much rooted in life. Overall I enjoyed reading this book and would like to extend a hearty congratulations to the author on the publication of this short story collection. I do believe it will appeal to her intended readership of older readers.
I was given a copy of this book as part of a blog tour. At no point was I asked to provide a positive review and the review is unbiased and based on my reading of the book.
That is it for another day my bookaholic friends. I will be back soon but until then keep reading and writing.
