Day 10 of March Madness is here and Unoma Nwankwor is bringing us an excerpt from Anchored By Love. Sometimes we try to build a wall of defense around our hearts, protecting it from outside intrusion. However, when our Heavenly Father has a plan, those fortresses are bound to come tumbling down.
Unoma is giving away a copy of her book to a random person who BOTH leaves a comment AND subscribes to her blog.
About The Book
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing John 15:5
When cardiac surgeon, Jabir Danjuma met Damisi Odinga at the University of Michigan seven years ago, their attraction can’t be denied. Their ensuing one year romance is passionate and intense, and he begins to feel the forbidden emotion—love. Just as he starts to let his guard down, Damisi breaks up with him and moves half way around the world to Lagos, Nigeria. He knows immediately that the demise of their relationship has something to do with that church she joined. His studies are the most important thing to him, so he did what any sane man would do, let her go.
Popular television personality Damisi Odinga, needs to end the fourth season of her show Becoming Ruth, with a bang. The trending topic in the country is the fairy-tale wedding of the heir to the Danjuma Empire. Coverage of the wedding weekend will give her show the boost it needs and reclaim its number one rating. No one can get an interview with the couple but she had a way in, her ex-man, Jabir Danjuma. So what if he broke her heart and she hasn’t been able to get over him? This was kingdom business, right?
Years ago, Damisi left him without an explanation and now Jabir has her just where he wants her. Their encounter sets off a series of events that leave them both with fresh pain and hurt. Will they stick it out long enough for the Potter to perfect their scars and pain for His purpose or will distance and time steal the day.
“So I guess you’re my knight in shining armor coming to rescue the damsel in distress…”
The tone of her voice was not lost on him. There was an edge in it he didn’t like.
She continued, “How many of us have there been over the years?”
“What?” He stared down at her.
She sat up straight and scooted away from him. She stared at him. “How many of us have there been? Six years…let’s see…yeah, I remember the three-month rule, so what is that, twenty-four?”
“You want to do this? Now?” His forehead creased in confusion. What had he said? How could she go from sweet one minute to this the next?
“We might as well. All this pretending we’re all good is making my stomach sick.”
He sighed. He wasn’t going to take the bait. Besides, she really didn’t want the answer. She just wanted to find a way to not let him into her heart.
“Answer me. How many?”
