“A Time to Heal” by Seye Oke is a wonderfully written book. Seye Oke has written this book about strange events taking place in an African community, with a Christian background. However, the events in this book can be taking place in any village, town or city between any two people in love, having to deal with disapproval by their families and the threat of war in their lives. A reviewer of this book says that “It has a potential of being a winner with both ancient and modern generation of African origin“. I totally disagree, and think “A Time to Heal” is for all to read and enjoy. The characters are likeable and their story is compelling.
Tori and Chidi meet at college, fall in love and marry. They share the beginnings of a happy married life, setting up routines and schedules that work for them. Chidi works while Tori spends her week in the big city finishing her college education. Chidi’s friends and co-workers are strong believers in the political scene taking place and try to persuade him to take an active part in their plans. Chidi tries unsuccessfully to resist, but the head of the movement is his father and the family he has left behind. Tori comes home to find Chidi gone. He has gone to fight the war. Tori is pregnant but did not get to tell Chidi before he left. We are taken back and forth and closely follow in the steps of both.
In “A Time to Heal” we understand how a young girl deals with being alone, scared and pregnant in a strange place, and how men fighting for a country they love think and feel during, before and after battles. “A Time for Healing” is about love, survival and winning.
Seye Oke has written an excellent book that is creative, intriguing and thought provoking. I highly recommend this book to all.
