Love's Affliction, a novel. Love across racial and cultural boundaries

Released on: October 21, 2014, 12:02 pm (EDT)
Author: Fidelis O Mkparu
Industry: Entertainment, Media

Canton, Ohio, October 21, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- From Fidelis O. Mkparu comes a moving debut romance, Love’s Affliction, the story of love across racial and cultural boundaries, when a young Nigerian premed student, Joseph Fafa, falls for Wendy Crane. Coming to North Carolina at seventeen to attend college, Joseph is forced to fight racial prejudice daily while pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor. He meets Wendy Crane, whose wealthy father opposes their relationship. It is said that young love rarely reaches its full potential, but Joseph and Wendy are determined to prove everyone wrong. Love’s Affliction captures the weakness and heartbreak of forbidden love. Will their romance endure the scrutiny of a racially-charged small college town?

As Ella EL-Kildani, M.Ed, Educator, Director of Genta Educational and Tutorial services puts it, Love’s Affliction reveals the “intense passion, ambition, and determination, between two college co-eds from opposite ethnic and social classes” and “the agonizing, yet thrilling journey into a late 70’s multicultural romance.”

Fidelis O. Mkparu is a Harvard-trained cardiologist whose background and experience form the basis of this fictional work. He lives in Canton, Ohio where he is a consultant cardiologist.
Selected endorsements:

“Loves Affliction is a poignant and emotional story of young love as it transforms from friendship to forbidden love, despite the cultural and racial barriers dictated by society.”
—Detroit Daytime Talkshow Examiner

“Love’s Affliction is a must-read book. It is part of a growing African migrant literature produced in the United States and dealing with important themes such as student-life abroad, love, romance, and cross-racial or cross-cultural encounters. The writing is very alluring and compelling, revealing the sophisticated nature of a new type of African literature from the United States.”
—Babacar M’Baye, PhD,
Kent State University, author of The Trickster Comes West
