Ngozi Omolaiye Releases 'Beyond the Distant Clouds'
In "Beyond the Distant Clouds" (published by AuthorHouse), author Ngozi Omolaiye's new relationship novel - the first in the In Your Sokoto series - readers follow the lives of multiple individuals as they dance through the world of love.
"I see a lot of relationships going wrong around me," states Omolaiye, "and most times the solutions are near to people, or lies within them. This inspired me to write a series of five books with the same theme but different characters and stories."
Within "Beyond the Distant Clouds," readers are invited to watch a perfect marriage go sour, a once pure relationship become tainted and endless futile searches for "the one." When a lady is caught in the middle of the couple's woes, a tragic event occurs that changes the couple's life forever.
An excerpt from the book:
"'Tife, please calm down. We didn't do anything. Why are you taking it so seriously?'
'We did do something; I don't even know what to call you. You were my big bro, but now you've messed it up. You won't even say you're sorry!' 'Tife, saying I'm sorry will not change anything. I really don't know what to say; I can't run away from the fact that I have fallen in love with you. You bring me so much joy and create such a nice balance in my life. You would never understand.' 'What is there to understand? Does a brother kiss his sister? Does a brother caress his sister?' 'Of course not," he said, "but you are not my blood ...' 'How can you say that?' she asked. 'You wiped my nose when I was a little girl; you dropped me off at school, played with Tunde and I. Above all, you are married, and I have a fiancé. I don't get it. You are a pastor ...' 'Stop it, Tife. You don't need to remind me. I know all of this. But I love you more than words can say. I see nothing wrong in loving you, Tife.'"
