Council-Daniels points out the need for God’s grace and the power of real family

The Best of Us – Part One

Pain is strong, but love is stronger.

Within the new book by Nakeia Council-Daniels, The Best of Us – Part One, ($14.99, paperback, 9781629525969) readers will discover an underlying theme about the deep meaning and purpose of family. The author insists that God instituted the family unit “to help us get through life in one piece.” Real family is love. Nakeia points out that a true familial bond is not necessarily about blood relation; it goes far beyond that, it’s much bigger than that. She adds, “Real family is passion, and crazy, and wild deceptively messy love…and love conquers all.”

“Pain is strong, but love is stronger,” states the author. “My book is newsworthy because it talks about the triumph of the spirit, and it teaches us that with God, all things—even victory over the unthinkable things—are possible.”

Nakeia Council-Daniels has worked in the arts for more than twenty years. A writer, vocalist, poet, and musician, she is now the author of her debut novel THE BEST OF US – PART ONE, a story of love, loss, corruption and family set in New York City. Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Nakeia now lives on the West Coast with her husband and three children.
