Top 10 facts about Midwife to Destiny by Nana Prah
Keep in mind that although I love making lists I’m not big on prioritization. I get enough of that working as a nurse. So be warned, this list is in no particular order, ascending or descending.
1. The heroine, Ora, is not a midwife, she’s a nurse. Surprise! Her cousin Esi who helps set Ora and Jason up the second time around is the midwife in the story.
2. I actually went on the tour bus that Ora and Jason take in Cape Town. Unlike Ora, I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting the man of my dreams there.
3. Jason is a beta hero. A man who’d move from one country to another to capture the heart of the love of his life kind of man.
4. Ora doesn’t own a car. She doesn’t mind taking public transportation, but won’t refuse a ride.
5. Ora never loved the man she was engaged to at the beginning of the book. She never loved any of the men she’d been pseudo-committed to, until Jason came along.
6. Jason likes to share his desert while Ora never even offers him a bite of hers. That’s how seriously she takes her sweets.
7. Ora will make you want to shake her- twice. If you want to do it more times than that, I suggest you get some help for your anger management issues.
8. Strong, stubborn Ora learns how to deal with what she considers one of the dirtiest words in the English language. Emotions.
9. Midwife to Destiny is a fast paced, entertaining romance which is set in South Africa and Ghana so you get a little bit of world exposure.
10. Esi, Ora’s cousin, and Adam, Jason’s best friend are the comic relief in the story. Ora and Jason are cool people while Esi and Adam are the attention seekers (Stay tuned for Book 2, Destiny Mine).
She crossed her arms over her chest, bringing the crest of her breasts into view. Nice. He made a mental note to make Ora cross her arms throughout the night.
“You feel me vibrating with anger and then you smile when I tell you why? Not a wise move, buddy.”
No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t wipe his grin off. “I’m not smiling because you’re angry. It’s because I’ve never seen you jealous before.”
“I’m not jealous.”
He lifted both of his eyebrows.
She paced the small area of the hut. “Well, maybe just a little. But I overheard her last week when I went to pick up a suction machine from the theatre saying she’d be stealing you away.”
Jason broke out into laughter that lasted for a full minute. When he got control of himself, he wiped the tears from his eyes.
She stood glaring. “You’re walking in quicksand, Jason. What’s so funny?”
“You are. Do you know how many women try to ‘get me’ as you put it?” He made air quotes with his index fingers. “I have no interest in any other woman than you. I asked you to be my girlfriend. I am a one-woman man and you are my one woman.”
Ora narrowed her eyes.
“Don’t you believe me?”
