Peace in the Abyss by Tayo Emmanuel

A heart-stopping story of love and heartbreak…

Emmanuel’s poignant work of women’s fiction adeptly explores the aftermath of a troubled relationship. Preye Banigo has worked hard to build her own PR agency. Still mourning the death of her fiancé, Preye faces the dreadful prospect of clocking forty as a single woman. When she meets Timi, she finds him too controlling but falls for him anyway. Will Preye realize her mistake before the time runs out? Emmanuel takes an assured, meandering approach to unravel her characters’ persona as the story moves forward. Readers will find it easy to root for the independent and assertive Preye for whom there is never a middle ground when it comes to taking significant decisions. Emmanuel’s portrayal of selfish, credibly flawed Timi is both realistic and authentic. The prose is first-rate, the narrative flows with ease, and the depiction of Preye’s troubled relationship with Timi and the way it unravels eventually is deeply realistic and wholly convincing. This one will tug at your heartstrings.
