What on earth could push or pull a woman and mother of three to abandon her marriage, elope with a street kid, leaving those three kids behind?

What on earth could push or pull a woman to live such parallel lives and fake such an existence whereas all the ‘glamour’ was just superficial?

What definitely went wrong in her childhood that could have contributed to the sad and da

Ayo, after reading and going through your book several times, I came to the understanding that, to make this comment tasteful, I hand to breakdown your work into two. That is, the informative side and the technical domain.

To be frank, it takes a lot of courage to bring out with honesty, what you wrote in this book. Only a hand full of people, even the most sincere, will think twice, before sharing out plainly, in the way you did. I can imagine the stress some main actors involved, can be having

I read Marie Abanga’s Unconventional Loves, a memoir for two reasons. One, it was an opportunity to know her as friend. Secondly, to acknowledge gratefulness I feel toward Marie that she read my book. Also I like reading Non Fiction.
Marie Abanga writes her memoir for two reasons. First she wants to give us a message. Secondly, writing is itself a therapeutic process. She narrates her life’s hurts, adulteries and her path to redemption.
This is insightful “Therefore, with such a multi-faceted rela

I met Marie Abanga on my blog. She left a comment on a post, and later used my Contact page to email me about her memoir.

Reading the synopsis told me there was a story here like none I had read in recent months. A story of a young woman on a journey, making mistakes as we all do, making wrong choices at times, and all of this rooted in a life which had provided its share of hurts and abuses.

In taking writing workshops and classes, instructors have told me to "loosen up your writing, write like y

Full Disclosure: Marie Abanga is my close friend and I received a copy of the book from her.

I've had the pleasure of going to university with Marie in Brussels and there we became friends. When I found out that she had written an autobiography, I asked for a copy and was surprised by her willingness to share raw and personal moment of her life in Cameroon. I found myself stopping in certain chapters describing her relationship with her parents and their relationship with each other. Anyone who w

"A personal story from a courageous lady that touches the heart of every reader.
The writer recounts her missteps and trials through life as she perpetually chases this illusive concept we all long for- 'love'.
In the process, she's tempted, bruised and healed, but ironically rewarded with the greatest LOVES of her life- her off springs.
A lesson learned, but not without passing through the good, the bad and the ugly in men.
Her experiences challenge hitherto women-centered African societal stereoty

I received a personalized signed copy of Marie A. Abanga's memoir compliments of Goodreads Firstreads Giveaway and appreciated the opportunity.

The author shares her "hurts, adulteries and redemptions" in this touching memoir. Her story is one of strength and determination shining through when faced with significant pain and loss. Abanga writes in an honest and raw format and it allows the reader to walk alongside her through her past journey. She did not give up on making a future for herself an

I, Marie A. Abanga, am what many will call a dynamic and determined woman. I go by the three Ds of Determination-Discipline-Dedication and yes in most of what I do I strive to do it to my best.

This led me through a life's lane of Hurts, Adulteries and Redemption as I tried to live out what I consider my 3 in 1 life. How do I understand and live fully my Spiritual, Physical and emotional life? It
