'They got married, had children and when they realized one of them has the sickle cell anamea, anxiety took the better part of them and their relationship was strained and almost destroyed their marriage.

'The lost of their first child and the resultant effects of their struggle on their marriage made them wiser on how to handle the second case.

'When Charles lost his wife unexpectedly, the sorrow was unbearable.  His teenage daughter was worried about her brother's deteriorating health and ask questions whose answers almost tore up the father-daughter relationship. But in the midst of that, they had to find a path to walk beyond their pains'. 

The 200-page piece will be an interesting read especially given the rattling realities which comes with the Covid-19 pandemic.
