Joel Savageabout this book: Many couples love to go to the cinema, visit the zoo, museum, restaurants and other places of interest because it strengthens their relationship and helps build a happy marriage. Ato and his wife enjoy a sweet and happy marriage by spending most of their time at home. They don't need to eat at restaurants, because his wife is a good cook. Any entertainment they need is available on the television. This keeps them at home rather than having to go out often. One time they were together in the living room, when he was inspired by the idea of writing a book about his wife. "Darling, I need to write a book about you," he said. "Well then I have a lot to tell you," she answered. She was right. Her husband left her and their one year old son to go to Europe.
Travelling and leaving your wife and a child behind was a hard thing to do when you really love your family, but Ato did it because he wanted a better life and good education for his family and for himself. Sometimes a man needs to be strong to follow his dreams for a better future. He asked her if she could still remember everything she went through without leaving anything out. "It was my hardest and most bitter experience, so I haven't forgotten anything," she said.
Her statement encouraged her husband to immediately start writing this book. He told her that since it's her story, he is going to use one of her beautiful photographs for the cover illustration of the book. "No, no," she protested. "Darling, no one knows you," he said to her. Then she agreed.
He quickly collected all her numerous photographs to find the appropriate one for the book cover and chose one which he liked most. It was one of the photographs she had sent to him in Europe, during a time when she was a prisoner of loneliness. Ato loves this picture because of his wife's natural long hair. Many African ladies have long hair like Europeans, and fortunately, his wife is one of them. After eight years in a dark tunnel, the reunion they weren't expecting occurred, but Akua's joy was short-lived after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. How did she survive this tragedy? Akua's story is meant to inspire and encourage thousands of women to be strong, firm and faithful, when in similar circumstances."Heart of Endurance" is a highly recommended book for both teenagers and adults. The heart is made to love and the mind to understand.
