Guilty in paradise is the story of Natasha Mgbate, a career woman who was physically abused by her father when she was growing up.
She made a decision at a tender age that life is a lot easier if she gave men a wide berth. She never bargained on meeting Essen Devon- a man forceful enough to bring down her defences with just a smile. Even more, she never counted on meeting Bola- the wife of Essen’s lifelong pal- Mike. Bola’s friendship was warm and unassuming, being an epitome of a woman who has achieved life’s most intricate task- balance.
In this taut circle of friends, Tasha was forced to re-evaluate her values, face her fears, overcome all the shackles that were holding her back from fulfilling her God-ordained destiny and in the process discover in the deepest part of her heart, a love that never fails.
This story highlights how childhood wounds can carry through to adulthood and shape one’s destiny without their knowledge. Blending some of the different ethnic groups in Nigeria, the author sprays the fragrance of acceptance and oneness that fosters unity.
