Loving Amanda, is a Christian romance book, that has been written in the third person narrative, which shares with us the grass to grace story of the main character, Amanda.
There are so many things to love about this book, because the message it preaches, is one that everyone should condone in their daily lives, no matter their religion.
Amanda is a character that life has pelted with many bad eggs. An orphan, who has no one to guide and correct her, or someone to check and put her back when she steps out of line. So, she made terrible decisions, and this left her naive and gullible to the evils of man.
Goch, is a man of God, one with a pure heart and a supportive family. A man who has been blessed to have a solid upbringing and strong sense of belief and faith; a man who is ready to share his faith with the world for the better good.
These two unlikely people manage to cross path and the story that unfolds is one that will have you hurrying to read the next page.
Goch doesn’t hesitate to introduce and welcome Amanda into his life, which also allows her to be in close proximity with the people in his life, who assist in the process of her healing.
We get to read as Amanda slowly heals from the emotional and physical abuse she had suffered in the hands of her ex Gbenga, who is quite the despicable character, and seems to have all the traits of an unruly Agbero.
It was wonderful seeing Amanda grow into a beautiful young woman, who is now sure of her self-worth, and is now blessed with the love and support she deserves.
From Lagos danfo buses to hotels, hospitals, churches, offices, ice-cream parlors & restaurants, brothels and many more, this book will take you on an enlightening journey rich with an array of characters, where some will have you squeezing your face in disgust, the others will fill you with love, hope and a positive outlook on life.
The key message in this book is well received and heard. It is a story of redemption, one which reminds us not to judge others, because there’s no man who hasn’t sinned. So rather than immediately condemning a person, we should try and provide them with the means to change, so that they can find their way and be on the path of righteousness.
