The novel is the first series in a Trilogy. It chronicles the journey of Anjola Ayo-Kessington. Your average girl next door whose life suddenly changes when she finds herself married to an older man from a prestigious and powerful family. She is forced to give up her personal ambitions to fit into her husband’s family’s ideology of who an Ayo-Kessington wife should be.
Anjola slowly begins to lose herself in her very predictable life as wife and mother, until her ex-lover resurfaces. Her world is suddenly thrown into a dramatic chaos that leads her to uncovering the truth behind her entrance into the Ayo-Kessington family, her friendships and even her real identity.
Anjola soon discovers that what she had considered to be a journey towards finding true love is actually a journey towards finding herself.
Will Anjola choose true love, limitless wealth, or herself?
It’s funny how people believe a thirty year old woman is still young. A thirty year old woman has not really ‘seen’ anything. She still has a lot to learn. She still has to grow up, develop herself and become her own woman. I have experienced several lifetimes and I am just thirty. I have grown. I have delved into my psyche and been reborn. The ups and downs. The joy and sorrow. The tears and laughter.
Being a part of the Ayo-Kessington dynasty is not a small thing oh. My eyes have seen and my ears have truly heard. This is a story of how I grew from a young twenty something year old Anjola Adekoya, your average girl next door with hardly any cares in the world to Mrs. Anjola Ayo-Kessington – the woman who won and lost so many battles, yet lived to fight another day.
Turn the pages and follow me on this incredible journey…my journey.
