Meet Suzanne, the descendant of an enslaved African, who’s still carrying the trauma of her ancestors in her DNA. Raised in the Faith, she has reached a point where she can no longer continue walking in blind faith. She writes God a fearless letter asking all the questions the church couldn’t answer, and ends it by asking for “the Truth!” This marks a turning-point in her life; she meets Charles, who sets her on a new path of enlightenment!
Their relationship is intense and passionate, but her indoctrination threatens the spontaneity of it; she wants the ring, but he is against the ‘white wedding’. Will they seal their union and fulfil their Twin Soul mission, or are they destined for a future without each other?
Join Suzanne on her quest for “the Truth!” about sex before marriage, the creative power of her thoughts, her African ancestry, and the his-story of the religion she had been indoctrinated into!
Your QUEST for ‘the Truth’ begins when you ask the right QUESTions!

This book breaks some unspoken taboos in a thought-provoking yet enlightening way that thousands of women and men can relate to:
“…It spoke to me on SOOOO many levels – it was as though you were writing about my experience at times. The church thing is SOOOO on point!!! While experiencing a range of emotions, I wondered, pondered, shrieked, gasped and almost wept when I came to the end! And please God…any chance of meeting someone like Charles??” ~ Silverlox Fox, London
“…I only downloaded Year One an hour ago. Your transparency – with addressing God’s relationship with man – is unlike anything I’ve ever read, but just about EVERYTHING I ever THOUGHT! THIS is part of why we are here! To develop such a degree of openness and authenticity, I thank you, and I honor your courage to press through and realize your gifts and the DEPTHS thereof.” ~ Gary B, USA (via Facebook)
“…I must confess, this is the first time I will be coming across a work challenging a lot of the childhood indoctrination I grew up with, yet written in a pleasant, indisputable, un-put-down-able, and suspense-filled manner. Talk about intellectually-stimulating and pleasurable rolled into one!” ~ bro A. Ibiyomi, Nigeria
“This book is AMAZING!! A mixture of self help, black history and Zane’s raunchy books, those (sex) scenes really help non readers and people like me that find history books boring to remain engaged. I haven’t completed a book in ages, I always get so bored after a while but this one has kept me engaged. I don’t usually like British authors either but I’m loving this, I haven’t had such a good read in ages and this has so far met everything I’ve wanted in a book. It’s really made my day!” ~ Kandes, London
” …Once I got started, it was impossible to put down. It opened my spirit and reminded me of a feeling I experience when reading Iyanla Vanzant…It is an amazing book and I would encourage anyone who is open to bettering themselves to read it… This book provides a foundation which will encourage you to continue learning and growing long after you have turned the last page.” ~ Sher, London
“Wow! What a wonderful journey! Sistar your novel came to me at the right time in my life and I appreciate this journey. I’m an avid reader of non-fiction, and have not been this intrigued by fiction since reading all of the works of my favorite author, Toni Morrison. …I devoured every word into my soul and anticipated every moment of their love and cultural/spiritual development. You truly have a gift of inspiring us chocolate sistars! There is truly nothing that can compare to Afrikan Love!!!” ♥ ~ Asma M, USA (via Facebook)
“The book was absolutely fantastic, I could not put it down. It was far different than I expected, but far greater. The love story was divine and I loved the way that it grew into the true meaning of love and creation rather than a typical explicit book…” Brenda, London
“Absolutely Fantastic!!! This book had me captivated from the first few paragraphs. There was so much that I could relate to, I found myself reading anxiously wondering what was going to happen next. At the same time, it was answering a few questions I had asked myself, an amazing read” ~ Sharn, USA
“It felt as though I was reading my diary. There were several parts I really identify with, firstly your letter to God – wow, I have asked those same questions! I had so many mixed emotions while reading, there were moments of tears, laughter, and last but for most, Hope.” ~ J. Jem, UK
“I was very surprised by this book’s content – I was hooked after the first chapter! I loved the central character and her personal discovery in finding her meaning to life, and confidence and courage to create. I hope the Author gets to take this book far and wide as it deserves to be read. Thank you for having the confidence to write this.” ~ Redsky, London

In 2016 I spent 4 months in Ghana, which inspired me to write Years 12 and 13. In 2018 I spent 5 months in the Gambia, which inspired me to revise the book and turn it into a film script which I’ve called ‘MELANIN TWINS‘ 👈🏾 Find out how you can help turn this book into a film by clicking on the link above!
