Second Chance to Wear His Ring by Hana Sheik
ABOUT THE BOOK
A forgotten past…Could pave the way to forever!
When millionaire Mansur Ali is called urgently home to Somaliland, he’s shocked to find that the woman who broke his heart needs his help. After an accident, Amal has lost many memories…including Manny’s marriage proposal and her rejection! Manny will help her seek treatment in Addis Ababa, but he’s resolved to keep his heart firmly off-limits. A promise that is tested when their journey brings them closer than ever before…
Ms. Sheik is a debut author who has written a beautiful second chance romance in an exotic land.
Mansur “Manny” Ali has flown back home to Somaliland from Pittsburgh in a panic due to his mother’s cryptic message. When he gets there, Amal, the woman who broke his heart, is staying with his mother and doesn’t remember her rejection of his marriage proposal last year. It appears Amal was in an accident and now has amnesia. As he goes to Addis Ababa to tackle his demons with his estranged father’s request, he takes Amal along to seek treatment for her affliction. Can he keep his heart safe?
Amal remembers the young Manny she played with as a child, but her amnesia has blocked out her memories as an adult. She can’t understand why he is so standoffish and cold, but she sees the pain behind his eyes as he deals with his late father’s inheritance and betrayal and she is determined to help him find closure. Her feelings for him are growing as she spends more time with him, but she feels like an obligation to him and he is being a dutiful son for his mother. There is no hope for her, but perhaps he can find happiness elsewhere.
Manny is a lonely and broken man who has worked hard to become a successful CEO in America. In part, Amal helped him through his struggles by offering her loving support from afar as she built her own company from the ground up. His doomed proposal to Amal the year before was out of desperation after his father died. The father who abandoned him and his mother for a new family. Amal is a kind person who believes in family and his refusal to attend his father’s funeral was a blow to all she stood for. Manny’s family welcomed Amal and her brothers with open arms when her father abandoned them after her mother’s death. Watching Amal’s quiet but firm ways ensnare Manny once again is both heartwarming and heartbreaking as Manny’s need for love and trust fights with his need to protect himself from heartache once again. They are a beautiful and generous couple who deserve much happiness.
I recommend highly this sweet debut second chance romance with vulnerable and complex characters set in the Horn of Africa.
