About meFidelis O. Mkparu was born in Onitsha, Nigeria. He was a recipient of Reader’s Digest Scholarship. A Harvard-trained cardiologist, he has published peer-reviewed scientific papers and review articles in major journals, and written articles for lay people on medical issues. He was inducted into Paul Dudley White Honor Society by Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, where he was a ‘Spaulding fellow'. He lives in Canton, Ohio.

About my libraryLove’s Affliction is the story
of love across racial and cultural boundaries, when a young Nigerian premed student,
Joseph Fafa, falls for Wendy Crane. Coming to North Carolina at seventeen to attend
college, Joseph is forced to fight racial prejudice daily while pursuing his dream of
becoming a doctor. He meets Wendy Crane, whose wealthy father opposes their
relationship. It is said that young love rarely reaches its full potential, but Joseph
and Wendy are determined to prove everyone wrong. Love’s Affliction captures the
weakness and heartbreak of forbidden love. Will their romance endure the scrutiny of
a racially-charged small college town?
