U is for Ubuntu #atozchallenge

I’ve had a few posts up about the books on the Ubuntu line by Decadent Publishing. I’d like to take a minute to explain the meaning of ubuntu.

From Ubuntu.com  

“Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning 'humanity to others'. It also means 'I am what I am because of who we all are'.”

We can’t talk about Africa for twenty six posts without mentioning the late Mr. Nelson Mandela. It so happened that he spoke about Ubuntu for the product Ubuntu Linux. May his legacy of forgiveness, peace, and love, live on in Africa and the world.


I'm taking a moment to advertise my latest novel written in the Ubuntu line. 


Blurb

Ghanaian nurse Aurora ‘Ora’ Aikins never expected to find the love of her life while on vacation in South Africa. Engaged to another and believing that love has no place in her life, she returns to Ghana, and puts duty and honor first.

Three years later, Dr. Jason Lartey still can’t get Ora out of his mind or his heart. After learning she never married, he takes a risk and moves to Ghana hoping to rekindle what they started. His sudden appearance in Ora’s Emergency Department sends sparks flying all over again.

They’re in the same country, working in the same hospital, and together but distance creeps between them. Can they make their destined love one for the ages?
