You cannot imagine the depth of my feelings, Pete... but... I cannot see any future for us. We are almost cut off from the rest of the country. Everyone is bitter. There is no money to pay workers and jobs are few. Recently, all those who left their jobs..." She went on and on. In fact, in the weeks that they had not met, a lot had been happening. But while she was saying all this, -a deep frown was gathering again on Peter's face. He was a bit surprised at her logic but said, "My dear, what has all this got to do with marrying me? Will you marry me? Will you marry me Vivian?" he repeated his question. "Even if there is no job for anyone, I want to marry you. Will you accept me Vivian?" She kept quiet, but he continued. Things are bound to change for the better. All efforts are being made to bring about reconciliation.' He paused and then said, "Vivi, you have a knack of leaving questions unanswered. Am I rushing you? Do you need time to make up your mind? I had made up my mind long time ago that it is going to be you or nobody. The Nigeria Civil War is a profound love story of victory through the treacherous terrain of fate. The story indeed is a fascinating account in graphic details of love blossoming in the harrowing events of the Nigerian Civil War. It is of immense historical importance, not only informative, but satisfyingly refreshing. Personally I find it compelling, alluring, a good book for every heart that loves.Prof. Michael G. Duewel.
