Myne Whitman's 'A Heart To Mend'
A HEART TO MEND narrates the relationship between Gladys and Edward and offers a unique reading experience. Direct and action packed, the masterful use of emotion and suspense will keep readers totally engrossed and guessing till the end.
The themes of premarital sex, social class mobility, and romantic ups and downs that mark a budding love are fully explored. However, Myne Whitman takes the story even further. Some unnamed people are about to take over Edward’s business empire and Gladys is implicated. Who are these people who want to betray him and destroy their happiness?
A HEART TO MEND will bring tears to the eyes and cheers at the end especially for those who have experienced the search for a career or tumultuous family and emotional relationships. Readers will be pleasantly surprised by the description of Lagos, the Nigerian stock market, and other business intrigues.
Myne Whitman grew up in Enugu, Nigeria, studying a lot, reading everything she could lay her hands on, and playing the rest of the time. She describes herself as friendly, caring and fun-loving. Though quiet and laid-back, she likes a good debate once in a while. She has been a teacher, NGO consultant, banker, skate-hire attendant, researcher and Scottish government worker. After a postgrad degree and a few years in Edinburgh, Scotland, she now lives in the United States with her husband. More information is on her Blog, Facebook and Twitter.
