A Time to Heal by Seye Oke A Review

Two worlds collide in a heated battle between past and future.
Chidi must decide between his love for his wife Tori and his call to duty to save his kindred when a civil war threatens to destroy his home. Will this threefold cord stand the test as the realities of a cross cultural marriage dawns? As life happens, these young lovers begin to wonder if they truly understood the gravity of the vows they exchanged on their wedding day..."With this ring I wed thee...Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God".

  This book was an O.K. book. It told of the life and struggles of a husband-Chidi and wife-Tori newly married, he goes off to war and doesn’t say good bye in person to his wife. She is away at college during the week and he leaves suddenly. How she copes with wondering why he has gone, where he is, even if he is safe.
   I didn’t think the characters and setting were described very well.
To me the story isn’t very believable and didn’t keep my interest. Even through it is a short book, only 188 pages it took me quite a while to read.  I hate to give a review that isn’t really good, but I have a duty to my followers and friends to tell you how I feel.
  I also noticed quite a few grammar mistakes and wording that wasn’t right. I don’t mind one or two mistakes but A Time to Heal had more than that. I didn’t care much for the ending. It ended like I thought it should but not with the same depth of feeling that I think it should have had. I know if this did happen it would be hard for a wife, but I think in the book Tori reacted wrong. I won’t be recommending this book.
