    The Naive Wife is really a great book to read. I was practically glued to it from start to the end. The fact that the book was quite unpredictable was really intriguing. I love the twist – a Christian Radio presenter, relationship and love talks, wealth, choices. Its a good book, well done Ufuomaee!!

    The Naive Wife is a very simple, relatable book. Choosing the right person could be a challenging task for the unmarried especially when it seems there are many options to choose from. Rachel did the right thing when she prayed to God and sought counsel. Did she really hear from God or was she led by appearances? Did she receive the right counsel? Did she establish truth from witnesses? Did she let societal expectations as to when to marry dictate her choice? As a counselor and radio host on love and relationship matters, did she apply the same counsel she gave others to herself? These and other questions are what readers should watch out for in this enjoyable read and yet another masterpiece from Ufuomaee.

    ‘Perfect love casts out fear’, one of my favourite scriptures. Great read and quite unpredictable, the story didn’t turn out how I thought it would. As usual, I love that Ufuomae’s characters are not perfect and are multifaceted, the characters are so relatable and realistic. As I read this book, I couldn’t help but relate it to my own life, how we can sometimes put God in a box and are better advicers to others than ourselves. From this story I can see why that quote, ‘to thyself be true’ is relevant. I think if Rachel was ‘true’ to herself she might not have made a ‘naive’ choice. However as the story continues, I know the Author is a proponent of redemption. So, who knows.. the story might turn around.

    A narrative well structured on a plot striking balance between Christian, sociocultural, and personal beliefs on relationships, as well as informative, rather educative, all the way, which will keep you reading from the first chapter to the last as quick as you can…

    I enjoyed reading Rachel’s Choice (finished it in one sitting). It was a relatable story and yet different. It was so refreshing to see Rachel work through some of the same fears and questions most of us do. Especially when it comes to knowing God’s will for our relationships/marriage. At the crux of this story is knowing the difference between doing the right thing and the God thing. Thank you so much, Ufuomaee, looking forward to part 2

    Ok. This book has got me hooked. I was scared as I could relate so well to the main character Rachel … a lot…down to her age and that scared me. At some point, I looked up and asked God if He wanted me to read this book as I met the Author by chance & I was drawn to the book as soon as I read the summary at the back.

    I absolutely love the narrative style, creating the scenes in my head was so easy that I would give certain outbursts or roll my eyes when I read some certain parts *let me not give any spoilers*, I would giggle at some point or give myself a facepalm when I couldn’t stand a certain character. This is a book that has got me entertained I must say and it also made me also become more aware of how often we misunderstand God as we tend to forget that His ways are not ours, neither are His thoughts like ours.

    I am grateful that God allowed our paths to cross Ufuomaee, I’ll be waiting patiently for the next part of this realistic story!

    After reading the book, The Naive Wife, l discovered that there are some beliefs and customs we have to do away with in our society about the female children. Our daughters, when they have reached a certain age, they find out that their parents, their relations, their loved ones will be talking about marriage, but it’s like they don’t care about who you are going to marry, whether he is the person who will take care of his responsibility till eternity, they don’t care so far you are married. This is not good.
    Another thing l learnt is the need for patience and to be prayerfully and to commit a new relationship to our heavenly Father. And also to ask for his great wisdom and his holy spirit to guide and to protect them. As they do these, they want to have a waiting attitude to look on to God for an answer, so that their works and that of their parents, and their loved ones will not be in vain.
    Besides reading this book, my advice to parents is to get the book and read it and encourage our of age children, and daughters especially, to read this book and get the real sense of what this book is talking about. Read Volume 1 and watch out for Volumes 2 &3, and enjoy your reading.

    The Naive Wife is a book that taught me alot of things, Am inspired by the book not to make FEAR rule over me. Rachel lived in fear, wanting perfection of a God fearing man as a husband. It’s good to have standards about our future husband but checking the necessity of the person we are getting married to is also important. We need to give room to people in our life, not limiting some over other (at the end of the day real friends stays in our life) Rachel was emphasizing on the fact that she want to hear from God about her boyfriend, if she had taken fear out of the picture she would have realized so many things about him before her marriage. Seriously do a thorough background search about intended husband to avoid stories that touch. Like I said I learnt alot I can’t wait for volume 2 to be out😍😍

    The Naive Wife, this book is really great! It taught me a lot of lessons. Right from the first chapter to the last chapter, I am relating it to my personal life and have really ordered my steps. Seriously, this book is not only for singles but for all. And for the author, you have never disappointed us with your mind-blowing books. You are indeed a blessing to this generation. Out of you shall continually flow rivers of living water. cheers!
