    PEACE in PEACE

    Miriam Ezeh's Story skilfully, like its title, tells more than two stories from one tiltle. It is about a girl called Peace, who finds herself in Love with a man in the midst of warring villages. She seeks purified love, complimenting her efforts with God's teachings and epitomising God's presence and Love of peace and unstained love. Peace tries to show that it is not necessary for people to fight and teaches this through the eyes of fighting children in a village where she and her friends take refuge in time of war. The protagonist, Peac, advocates peace by disagreeing with her brother, who beleives that the only way to avenge their parents death is to fight back at the enemies of war. Notice that even though the story is about the girl Peace about her struggles of surviving in war, of keeping her brother away from teaming with rebels of war,and of managing a relationship she suddenly finds herself happily in, it is also a story about how all these can be achieved without bloodshed. Miriam Ezeh's language and diction is recommended for reading, she mixes humor with strict biblical teachings, and often, helps the reader realize that prayer is an inevitable part of human life. I think also, that one might wish to compare the book with William Shakepeare's Romeo and Juliet, although written in different dictions, and in an older century, The story of Peace and Romeo and Juliet, tell of Love that is strong. Where Romeo and Juliet somewhat rely totally on human efforts to sustain their love in the midst of various obstacles, Peace and her male friend struggle to sustain their love in the midst of war, through prayers and God's interventions, and without fornication. The obstacles in Romeo and Juliet may be less intensive when compared to that in Story of Peace, but we see different personalities in the various characters in both books and how these personalities react differently in somewhat like situations. I would like that the book be recommended in institutions worldwide since it teaches and entertains, most importantly, it teaches what the world seeks most today Peace in our societies worldwide, how this peace can be sustained, and undoubtedly, how it can be achieved. It's a big loss, if you havent read your copy already.

    Great Story on Love!!!!

    I just finished reading the book excellent -'! I mostly enjoyed how the author took the opportunity to minister and teach the readers about Christ's love. Not only did Peace exemplify the definition of her name, she also demonstrated whether you are mother-less, father-less, sibling-less, etc., our heavenly Father always stands by and takes care of us just pray and believe that God will take care of you. Stand on His Word. Even for John, God gave him such peace to continue the work necessary to heal God's people. What an awesome example of servant hood. I can go on and pick out ways God expects us to live in this story but it is written, get a copy and read. Youth leaders, I encourage you to assign this reading to your youth group. What an awesome way to teach on God's love and purpose in our lives, as well as right relationships with each other.

    A reviewer

    In The Story Of Peace, Miriam Ezeh, gives us a picture of an orphan girl struggling to survive in a world on the brink of war.She faces doubts and temptations but her strong faith in God never lets her down.A romance novel, The Story of Peace is one of the few in its gener, that has sucssesfully intertwined morality with modern day romance without being too preachy.Set in rural Africa,the reader, thanks to Miriam's ability for vivid description gets to experience the land without setting a foot outside, the characters are so real they almost jump out of the book. The suspence and adventure has been so cleverly woven that you wount be able to stop reading. Miriam's trade mark humour is not lost here either, this is definetly a must read!!.
