Somerset NJ – WEBWIRE

The romantic story that shows when true love prevails and fights against all odds.

The Jericho Wall tells the about a young couple’s romantic love story. The couple came from different cultural backgrounds. The young man, an Igbo named Okocha Anigbo, fell in love with an American girl named Tatiana Karefa. The family, especially the father, of the young Igbo man is against the relationship because the Igbo community deeply discourages relationships outside their clan. True love prevails, though, and the couple married and eventually conceived their first child.

The book is very well-written and the story is quite interesting. This is a wonderful addition to one’s collection. The Jericho Wall will soon be displayed at the 2017 Frankfurt International Book Fair, which will take place on October 11, 2017.
