"An unexpected and heartfelt romance about true love and the sacrifices we make for it."
--Sonya Lalli, author of The Matchmaker's List

"Ties That Tether was a roller coaster ride from page one and holy cow did I love it. Jane Igharo chronicles Azere's journey in such a beautiful, wrenching, and relatable way. As Azere struggled to find a balance between her love life, her own happiness, and the expectations of her family, I went through a whirlwind of emotions--and I adored every minute of it. I laughed and teared up and cheered and yelled. Best of all, Jane Igharo delivers a happily ever after that made me smile until my cheeks hurt. I tore through this amazing book, I couldn't read it fast enough."
--Sarah Smith, Author of Simmer Down

"A Nigerian immigrant herself, Igharo tackles issues like immigration, cultural identity, and interracial dating in a compelling way. While a love story at heart, this book is so much more than that. It's a must-read for your summer vacation."

"A wonderful fall romance with immense depth, Ties That Tether seizes you from the very beginning."
--Shondaland

"The best part of this book for me was Azere and her mother's relationship. It is so fraught with the immigration experience.... To read this book is to read it for the tenderness of the romance and for the immigrant experience, to feel your heart soften and your throat clog with tears, and to celebrate the resilience of the spirit. As Rilke has said, 'To love is the ultimate human task.' So celebrate the love between the protagonists and within their families as you turn the pages."
--Frolic
