A sweeping and inspirational novel of historical romance, A Time to Heal is the story of Tori and Chidi, two young lovers bound by the covenant of marriage but separated by the realities of ethnic differences. Newly wed and settling into life as a married couple, Tori and Chidi soon find their relationship, and everything they hold dear, tested in the face of a civil war.
Called upon to fulfill a family obligation that forces him to make an impossible choice between his new bride and his legacy, Chidi embarks on a painful and arduous journey of self-discovery. When his close companions, Dozie, Azuka, and Jude, implore him to fight for a course he has no faith in, Chidi is torn between his family obligation, his friends, and his new wife. The finality of Chidi’s ultimate choice comes at a high price: he excludes Tori from his plans and ultimately, from his life.
Left alone and searching for support, companionship, and consolation, Tori works to rekindle her strained relationship with her parents and clutches to the warmth offered by a stranger. But as time passes and distance between them grows, Tori and Chidi struggle to understand and uphold the newfound persons they have become. Had either really understood the gravity of the vows they exchanged on their wedding day?
As Chidi gives in to the clarion call of his kindred to join in the fight for recognition and respect against powerful forces, Tori is left to rediscover the true meaning of family, loyalty and love. Consumed by the heartache of loneliness, Tori questions every value she had ever upheld as she finds herself torn between loving another—and waiting for the one who betrayed her love. As two worlds collide in a heated struggle between the past and the future, uncertainty abounds. Can true love reign over all?
An incredible story about faith, hope, and the healing power of love, A Time to Heal is inspirational, moving, and unforgettable. An extraordinary story that brilliantly juxtaposes the turbulent times of a violent civil war and the inner tumult of its characters, A Time to Heal is a bold and inventive tale that takes readers on a journey like no other. A mesmerizing and exciting story that carries an important message, A Time to Heal is a beautiful and triumphant tale, exceptionally well-told.
