About "The Greatest Debtor to His Love and a Trophy of His Grace"
This book is a story of survival, even in the most incredulous situations. Ngozi Okike talks about how shocked she was to discover that her first name revealed the circumstances surrounding her birth. She had survived abortion, following all of her mother's crude attempts to terminate her pregnancy. The excuse of her parents was that they could not financially sustain an extra child. Nevertheless, their efforts were unsuccessful, and the fact of her being born without any abnormalities is a mystery that Ngozi finds amazing, and she believes it was God that protected and kept her alive in her mother's womb for a purpose. She also shares her experiences as a teenager in the Nigeria/Biafra war, and how she escaped abduction, rape, and murder, through her father's act of bravery. She narrowly escaped murder by armed robbers when she was heavily pregnant with their first child, causing her to go straight into labour, and she gave birth to their son in circumstances that could only be described as most traumatic. She recalls how she almost lost the child. The book reveals the challenges of motherhood, and the near escapes from death of her children. She also provides a breath-taking account of how she left four young children behind in Nigeria in search of the golden fleece in the UK, and how through what could be described as her error of judgment and human injustice, it appeared that her dreams, hopes and aspirations were shattered.
