Abimbola Dare has continued in the vein of her previous work, 'The Small Print', which was to send messages to listening ears and eyes without being overtly preachy. She has managed to create believable characters in real life situations with real life problems. All her characters are explained with the WHY alongside the WHAT makes them WHO they are. The WORD never gets in the way of a great story, while a great story never gets in the way of the WORD. It is a story that EVERY woman and man will learn from.

Well written and a compelling read. Thoroughly backed.

I am glad I listened to my sister and read this book. As someone involved in marriage counseling in the church, the book reminded me of areas to focus on. It is a book I recommend to any young lady intending to go into marriage. It is especially important for our African setting where societal pressures make young folks take wrong decisions. There is also a subtle challenge to counselors and pastors to ensure that any counseling they give is sincere and Bible based, and not out of selfishness.
This is a beautiful book. Anyone who sincerely intends for his/her marriage chords to remain unbroken, needs to read it.

I laughed and cried through this book, though the latter emotion was what enveloped me the most. the mannerism of the main character's mother had me nostalgic for such aunties from back home when she was first introduced though my adoration soon disappeared. it deals with such a painful subject and shows how unpredictable the surrounding events that make a woman susceptible to such base treatment are. you never know. its has spurred me on to want to help

Lord knows I was fighting back tears whilst reading this book. Having seen domestic violence first hand, this book was extremely raw and encapsulated the prominent issues and emotional consequences of domestic violence, especially when 'culture' is involved.

The protagonist (Destiny) reminded me of my mum. I am forever inspired by her courage and forgiving heart to those who hurt her. Iretioluwa reminded me of me, the daughter a mother who was willing to completely ignore what the 'cultural society' will say about being a single mother for the sake of her children.

Intertwined with raw emotion, humour and lessons to be learned. I'd definitely recommend this book! This book is for all the untold stories of women with those broken chords called marriages. Broken chords of hurt. "Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; touched by a loving heart, weakened by kindness, Chords that were broken will vibrate once more"

"Forgiveness is not an emotion. It is a decision. It is not about acting as if nothing happened. Its about accepting what has happened and choosing to pardon the offender... a hard choice that takes a conscious effort. "

"Forgiveness is a commandment. going back to an abuser is not."

Thank you Abimbola for dealing with real issues in the faith today. When Broken Chords sing was a fantastic read. I finished it in one seating.

Keep Shining.
