Silent Symphonies

By Sally Chiwuzie

Romance | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


Set in mid-nineties London, Silent Symphonies follows the life of sultry Leila Cranston-Jasper, a highly-strung writer in her thirties on a quest to find love, peace and a semblance of normalcy in her idiosyncratic life. Her husband, Akash Yoganathan numbs Leila and picks her apart using his arrogant intelligence and wit. Parallel to this providence is her involvement with a scholarly, subtly sexy cardiologist, Kaobi Chetachi-Ubah, who breaks down Leila’s walls one brick at a time, luring her to a life that she can only ever taste on the tip of her tongue. When a chance encounter with a fortune-teller gives Leila a cryptic overview of ther destiny, she dismisses this as hogwash. Then her rose-tinted-glasses of naivete fall off in a series of dramatic events. In chasing fulfilment, we follow Leila’s effervescent journey which involves the personal bondage that only a soul-twin brings, in a poignant brawl with the liberation peculiar only to a soul-mate. She spends her life-time in the company of the oddity of the fortune-teller’s words. The leaves of destiny then dance in accordance with the rhythm of the wind.

Sally Chiwuzie inspires and empowers women globally by sharing emotionally raw, relevant and compelling stories about love, passion, sex, romance, loss, conflict, abuse and challenge that helps them to embrace their own value, tap into their own strength, and transcend the obstacles that life invariably throws in their way. Sally’s writings as a young girl in Nigeria were recognized from the start for their startling honesty and emotionally-charged insight that touched hearts and inspired readers to turn negativity into determination, weakness into strength, and learn to evolve and grow through the power of story and community. From her youth in Nigeria, to her experiences during a difficult marriage, divorce and as a mother, Sally has never held back, sharing glorious highs and wrenching lows with a rare honesty and clarity that continues to captivate a global community of loyal readers and supporters. Her seminal novel, “Silent Symphonies,” took almost 10 years to complete as she fought self-doubt and discouragement brought on by being told that she lacked the intelligence, talent and drive to attain her dreams. Knowing that women feel pigeon-holed into fitting the mould of a “perfect” wife, mother, and pretty much everything else, Sally’s book inspires readers to understand that life is supposed to be filled with challenges and that at the end of the day it’s how we handle those challenges that define our own stories and the quality of our lives.
