A young woman paralyzed by past rejection
A life shackled by lies
A truth waiting to be discovered

In this thought-provoking literary debut, author D. U. Okonkwo weaves an emotionally intense tale of one young woman’s journey to overcome past rejection and discover the true source of self-esteem.

At age eleven, Ria Ofor was caught in a fire that left her facially-scarred. Devastated by the apparent rejection by her father, Ria, now twenty-seven, is a gifted sculptress but lives a semi reclusive life. Avoiding art galleries and their consequent publicity, she sells her artwork online, scraping a living through online sales. But when she's hit with a repossession notice on her home, it rocks the shaky foundations she’s been living on.

On borrowed time, Ria knows she must land a gallery contract in order to survive. That means stepping out of her comfort zone and coming face to face with what she’s spent the last sixteen years trying to avoid: rejection.But competition for lucrative gallery contracts is cut-throat, and Ria soon discovers that some artists will stop at nothing to keep the spoils of the glittering art world for themselves.Torn between the events of her past and the lies threatening to also destroy her future, Ria makes a decision that changes her life forever.

Provocative and inspirational, RISE is a story of scars, courage and enlightenment. It is also the story of a young woman forced to search inside herself to discover a truth that conquers all lies.
