Henna ventured into the property business and lost it all—her money, her cherished family, and her pride. In her day job she provides therapeutic counselling to others but, secretly, she is on the verge of a breakdown. Abandoned by her children and shunned by her neighbours, Henna can’t see a way out of the crippling debts and emotional distress she has become trapped within.
That is, until she one day encounters a stranger while walking in the park. Striking up a conversation, Henna comes to learn that failure is never a yardstick to giving up but, instead, a gearing force to empower future success. Sooner or later, despite the bitter experiences we encounter, we all come to a turning point in our lives. How we respond to that determines whether we remain stuck or smash through the obstacles in our way to happiness.
Turning Point by Funmi Anu Bankole draws upon the author’s own painful experiences to provide readers with, perhaps, the most important life lesson of them all: perseverance.
