Short Description: A very deep collection with the author touching on a number of threads about life. Love, especially, is proclaimed and celebrated in ‘The Rains have fallen’, ‘Yours unconditionally’, ‘Star’, ‘Love has made it’ and many more.

Famodun’s style sometimes drifts to the pre-romantic era of English literature. However, in ‘Aditu’, the author uses poetic insight to explain the mysterious powers of nature that man has succeed in harnessing, but has yet to fully explain. The spirit of assurance of redemption is woven throughout the collection especially in poems like ‘Positive’ and ‘Poem of Redemption’. It is a good read and very philosophical in ‘Gangplank’, ‘The Way’, ‘I, someone else and Myself with Me’, ‘Infinity’ and ‘Baby’. You don’t need to appreciate reading poetry before you could enjoy ‘Poems of Redemption.’ – MrAkanz (Amazon Reviewer)

Short Description: When Nadine is confronted with the reality of her failing marriage, her first instinct is to work it out. She has had it drummed into her that marriage is ‘for better, for worse’. Walking out is just not an option – her faith would condemn her and her culture would make her a pariah.

The combination of Nadine’s background, education, social standing, friendships, faith, experiences and past relationships is meant to equip her to become a success. Failure is alien to her and love means forgiving at all cost.

As she tries to survive and make the most of the curves that life has thrown her, she discovers that ‘success’ is a subjective term, and that ‘happily ever after’ is something that you have to discover and define for yourself . . .
