Second chance

FORMER journalist and public relations officer Sainiana Radrodro will soon make a foray into the literary world by releasing her first romantic novel called Second Chances.

The book, which is in the final stages, is about her journey of overcoming a traumatic marriage, an abusive husband, relationship and emotional abuse.

Radrodro said the book depicts her own journey and also journeys of other women that went through similar abuse in life.

"Scribbling these experiences on pieces of paper is a healing process in itself, that makes me and other women stronger — to accept, embrace and continue with life," she said.

"Most of us who went through this lifestyle only want to be loved, understood and be accepted."

These she said were the basics women needed because love was not about wealth, but companionship.

Radrodro said writing the book was a healing process for her because she was able to translate her emotions into words.

Over the years, Radrodro would write little scripts whenever she went through a traumatic experience.

And in the past nine months she was able to put those little scripts together to form the book.

Radrodro said she also realised this was one area Fiji needed to extend on — writing such romantic novels because Fijian people were romantic at heart and were known for serenading and other cultural activities.

"I am appealing to the public to pick up a book when it's available in bookshops between March and April."
