Unathi takes us through some of the most memorable and career defining moments of her life. The book is a journey of the start of her career, marriage, family, friends and other influential people that she values the most and defines as valuable circles that influenced who she is today.
It is a beautiful story filled with all the ups and downs life has to offer and shows just how resilient and focused she is; having gone through all the battles she has had to encounter, but still being able to rise above the noise.
While giving valuable lessons on love and family, she also reveals all about the court cases that were widely publicised and how those cases ended. She also opens up about her divorce from her husband and a lot more. She leaves no stone unturned and this book is a testament that she is ready to tell her story. Yet in all this, she is convinced that she does not know it all – she keeps learning!
“The fact that I keep learning brings comfort to me. That I will continue to receive guidance and advice along life’s way is reassuring to me. I have also learnt that I will never stop praying.”
“Unathi’s story is a testimony of a relentless heart. It is a match stick for every girl, mother, daughter, aunt and grandmother who forgot their fire to look within.”
