This story has you hooked from beginning to end
Treacherous Heart is a story about love, forgiveness and the redeeming grace of God. It is an inspirational feature about one young woman fighting obstacles like an arranged marriage and her own wayward heart. She finds out quickly enough that growing up in Canada does not insulate her from Nigerian social taboos as well as cultural and religious differences. Having completed school and now working, her Nigerian parents have arranged a very promising marriage to their friend's son but she is determined to find love for herself even if it means committing a cultural abomination by going against her parents. When she meets and falls in love with Dan, they must first deal with the skeletons from her mother's cupboard that threatens their love.
