Book Review: God, Michael and Me by Rosemary Okafor

I have read a couple of books by this author and I loved reading them both. Therefore, I was super excited to get into reading this one especially when I discovered it was a Christian romance story.

God, Michael and Me’ is a love story that features Martha, a 39 year old single lady who has concluded that perhaps, finding love and getting married is not one of the blessing she will receive from God in this life time. However, little does she know of God’s plan for her to meet Michael, a much older widower at a conference and it is love at first sight. Despite the complexities of their backgrounds, past relationships and family issues, they were able to believe God’s revelations to both of them and hold on even when things didn’t seem to work out as they hoped. This is a story about love and God’s perfect timing.

I enjoyed reading this one. Although some may find it unbelievable that God was speaking to both Martha and Michael independently, I could totally relate to it. I also loved the fact that the author brought to the fore the fact that Christians totally committed to God in all things can get really physically attracted to each other when they meet “the one”. I thought that this was a very important theme to add to the story so as to let young Christians know that there is nothing wrong with them but to ensure that they practice self-control and discipline in their relationships they are cultivating towards marriage. The only downside for me was that it was a bit predictable and there was nothing that threw me off or kept me guessing. I am always looking out for Christian fiction stories by Nigerians and this author has won my heart again as she has written a book in this genre as well.

If you love Christian fiction/romance, I highly recommend this book.
