Publisher's Summary

Life is always a little easier when we have a listening ear, a compassionate heart, and A Hand to Hold.

A Hand to Hold is the tale of a young Ethiopian orphan named Adina, adopted at five years old and brought to the United States of America. Under her new parents' love and care, she blooms and tries to assimilate to her new home, but she also finds herself longing to know her biological parents, and what happened to them. As she goes through life from childhood to adulthood, Adina always feels a piece of her soul is missing. 

Through an unexpected encounter with a publisher interested in her story, Adina begins to heal her past and is offered a hand to hold for her life forward. 

As she did in her memoir, Evolving Through Adversity, author Seconde Nimenya once again shares with her listeners her insightful, inspiring, and uplifting stories and invites us all to look into our human condition: peel back the layers of our own complexities, trust our inner guidance, and let our souls evolve.

Wow just Amazing is an understatement for this book!

I am in awe by the creative performance of this novel. It’s not only a story to read, but a revolution in the making. A hand to hold and your writing is truly inspiring, raw and the imagery is powerful. You have the potential to mediate between different worlds, cultures and still represent a narrative that does not take away from the depth of the protagonist struggles. I was on a whirlwind with Adina’s story and felt both emotionally charged and empathetic for her adversities. This story allowed me to see the struggles of not only single mothers, immigrants or children who have been adopted but to see a human with a deeply layered story, which did not end in her struggles but also evolved into triumph.Her adversities has meaning not only for herself and her family, but also for her ex husband Charles Kumi, who learned a lot about himself. I learned a lot about the power of forgiveness, risk taking and tenacity through Adina’s eyes. I believe her story could only be written through the lens of someone who has really traveled beyond borders, and also done the spiritual work. I love the message in the last chapter and don’t want to give any spoilers, so I will just leave my review here for all others to add to make their own connections with the favorite authors. Also for other readers please comment your favorite characters I would love to continue a dialogue in this story. Thank you so much for a Hand to hold, I will be listening to the audio book many more times!
