This book might have been titled, “Understanding the Afterlife for Dummies”, but we are not dummies. We simply have never been taught what happens after this physical life ends. We are promised “eternal life”, but what and when and where is that? This is a clear presentation, using real-life experiences and photos accompanying those, that show our loved ones are still with us, not just in our hearts and memories, but in our homes and cars and daily lives.

Can a broken heart forgive, when the flesh can't forget? The last thing Frankie expects to find lurking in a pile of innocent—looking birthday cards is a letter from her estranged husband—the man who broke her heart and threw away their marriage for a night of drunken extra—marital sex. And the last thing she needs is to revisit those feelings of hurt and betrayal brought back by his words of apology and regret. After everything she's been through, is it too much to ask to be left alone to try and build a new, independent life for herself? Apparently it is. As letter after letter falls on her doormat, and the beautiful, eloquent words contained therein slip through her tightly constructed defenses, Frankie becomes a jumble of mixed emotions and desperate desire. Rage, sorrow, revenge and lust mix to make an explosive cocktail when Frankie and Mark find themselves face—to—face for the first time since the split.

Through a wide range of indigenous, postcolonial, gender and racial lenses, African writers have provided perspectives on various aspects of old age in the context of African literatures and cultures. This book illustrates how African literary and linguistic representations, ranging from short stories, novels and film to drama and theatre, give expression to ideas about old age. The perspectives offered here provide essential knowledge in understanding the uses of dichotomous age-related categories, such as old-young, elderly male-elderly female, and foreign-indigenous, which generally result in prejudice. Using ageism as its central theme, the contributions draw attention to the ambiguity associated with elderly people in African society who are often highly venerated for their wisdom, but also stereotyped because of their advanced age. However, as the book demonstrates, old age is also deeply valorised in some traditional African contexts, where older adults are regarded as indispensable members of society. It will be of particular interest to scholars, researchers, and students of African studies, applied theatre studies, gerontology, postcolonialism, sociolinguistics, sociology and anthropology.

Summary of Love’s Journey. In this book, I have had more than my share of life’s problems, and I feel like we all share the same common thoughts in wondering how one’s life can be so promising yet deceptive. How love and hate co-exist in a realm of equal compromise. To the edification of good, nevertheless, evil always seem to follow. Life is not to be mistreated, so life has to be embraced. However, love is only surreal to those who treat it like that. Therefore, we have the power to declare our happiness and decipher who, what, when, where, and why people try to keep us miserable like themselves. Along this journey, love and pain has been produced, and we all must go through this chapter of life. I feel like its time to let others feel what I have experienced and now realize what has been due to me since my very existence (my happiness) and to show you all that you too can have peace in whatever situation you may be facing because you cannot stay down forever. I have tasted a piece the goodness, and I want more. Finally, to those who have chosen to read this book, I hope you find useful information to move on to your destiny, your happiness, and your eighth wonder of the world. You have to want better and hold on to what life has in store for you. If it’s for you, then no one else can take it. P.S: Find your reason for living and there you will find what makes you tick!

A girls retreat to New Orleans and her first secular concert is a step in the right direction. Love is excited about the adventures that await her until she sets eyes on Maxwell.
