Life can sometimes be a woollen tapestry; one tug on a loose thread and it all starts to unravel. In Unravelled, Folakemi Emem-Akpan shows just how. She introduces you to neighbouring families on a Lagos Street, all unravelling one reel at a time. You will meet Collins, a new widower trying to make sense of his wife’s death and attempting to put even more distance between him and God. You will meet Bolu, pregnant and battling preeclampsia with a cancer-stricken daughter and a brooding, cheating husband. Then there is Bethany, a youth pastor who wants nothing more than to be a mother but who cannot. What happens when she finds that her husband has a child outside of their union? But this is not a book of sorrows. We will experience their pains and sorrows but much more than that, we will share in their joys. The author, Emem-Akpan, shows us just how God can stitch together broken threads and lives, if only we’ll allow Him. This is a book of hope, to renew your trust and help you along your faith journey.
