The book, a collection of 10 interesting short stories, examines the challenges single Christian sisters face on a daily basis. Living in Lagos, it is no news that Saturdays are always agog with Owambe parties; of people getting married every weekend. However, the ratio of ladies getting married doesn’t equal that of ladies sitting back at home, awaiting their own ‘knight in shining armor’ or the brave ones who go to those Owambes seeking to capture a ‘knight’ either by hook or by crook.
Written by Violet Anierobi, ‘Chronicles of a Single Sister Lady’ is a riveting book that is scheduled for launch in Lagos.
Venue: The Sun Room; Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Lagos.
According to the writer, “the book is filled with fictional tales that revolve around the lives of 10
single Christian sisters and the different quagmires they have to face in their quest for marriage to a
good man and for a good home. These challenges sometimes test their faith and may make them do the exact opposite of what the Bible admonishes them to do”.Being a Single Christian sister herself with her fair share of challenges, Anierobi seeks to use the book as a guide to aid other single Christian sisters who may also be plagued by some of these challenges with the simple message that ‘You are not alone’. It is a must-read for both spinsters and bachelors as it gives a peek into the train of thoughts of Christian single ladies.
“Tonia, considered by friends and colleagues to be a self-assured lady, has to wrestle with self-doubt and re-evaluate what she has believed all along when she meets James.

In this collection of riveting short stories, Violet Anierobi takes us on a journey into the lives of ten Christian ladies as they navigate their season of singleness.
