The Perfection in Love (Booklet One)
Much to the chagrin of Oyin’s parents who would rather she be married to a “good boy from a good home who was third in line for the throne of Oba of Lagos.”
Much to the heartbreak of Olive, Henry’s childhood best friend, who has been hopelessly in love with him for over fifteen years.
But none of these matter because they love each other, right?
Because they also have issues. Issues that are exacerbated when a childhood friend, a suspicious mother-in-law and an insouciant father-in-law come visiting.
They are all soon to find out that we do not love because we are perfect. We are perfect because we love and are loved. Matthew 5:43-48, 1 John 4:19
This is Booklet One of a three-part series that would eventually make up one really long book.
The Perfection in Love (Booklet Two)
The dictionary defines perfection as being without fault or defect. A dictionary-perfect marriage is all that newly wedded couple, Nigerian-American Oyin Wilson and Scottish-American Henry Wilson, want.
But…it’s complicated: Oyin’s parents who do not exactly approve of Henry came to visit for a few weeks, and so did Olive, Henry’s childhood best friend who is in love with him.
After they leave, Oyin and Henry are unable to find their path back to the dictionary-perfect marriage.
Do they even want to keep trying? Is this the end for Oyin and Henry?
Would Henry ever find out Olive is in love with him? Would Oyin's parents ever approve of Henry?
