ABOUT THE BOOK.
As a child, Mary Uwanna believed in the power of faith and love, and loved to tell stories of Princes. Everything changes when she loses her parents in one night, and is left to care for her three brothers. In a climate of corruption and immorality, even the Church was not a safe refuge for sixteen year old, Mary. She makes a decision that threatens to steal her destiny, until she meets her Prince.
Ifeanyi Chukwueke is not the Prince Mary had envisioned. He is a bad boy, with a reputation for breaking hearts. But his heart is set on Mary. Faced with her haunting past, he makes a decision to love her regardless… Until his own past comes to threaten their happily ever after – time and again!
The Church Girl is a story about a love that was destined, but tried in every way. Mary and Ifeanyi must learn that in order to live, they must first die to self, as their love and faith is tested through many trials and temptations.
Follow this roller-coaster ride about a love that overcomes all, that will grow your faith, or lead you to the One who holds the keys of Life.
