Book Excerpt 


Sandra is determined to please her father, who is ambitious and understands the value of education. Unfortunately, her father is dealing with problems that not even he can control. Consequently, Sandra’s hopes and dreams are shattered when he fails to honour his word to support her in getting into higher education.


Sandra eventually accepts this reality but suspects a family member may have had something to do with it. And when her father suddenly resigns from his job, he makes it clear that Sandra must shoulder the family responsibilities. It's an onerous task, and Sandra has obstacles at every turn, but she takes it in her stride.


Later, Sandra falls in love, and for a while, life seems enjoyable. But like all other things in her life, the relationship doesn't last. She later meets and marries Maxwell, who is more mature than she is. It is not love at first sight for Sandra, but she soon discovers that Maxwell is 'Mr Right' after all.


At last, Sandra's life seems fulfilled as her husband supports her in every way and encourages her to follow her dreams. But little does she realise that tragedy is waiting around the corner.
