The Jagged Path tells the true story of a young girl’s journey from an idyllic life in rural 1940’s Nigeria, through the heartbreak of losing her parents, tumultuous years with uncaring guardians, an abusive marriage which ended in betrayal, to finally finding hope and happiness.
In this powerful tale of resilience, fortitude and faith, Charlotte Osho describes arriving in mid-sixties London faced with an onslaught of new experiences, unfamiliar foods, a very different climate and of course, the shock of racism. But though she quickly adjusted to her new home, dreams of a happy marriage and security were soon shattered by a husband who became emotionally, financially and physically abusive. Left to raise their three children alone, Osho was, at times, bereft, uncertain how she would overcome these challenging circumstances. But through a chance conversation with a colleague, she reconnected with the church, finally finding the fellowship and sense of community she had been looking for. And through her new-found faith she gained the resilience to keep fighting, truly building a life on her own terms and the confidence to develop her nursing career to support her young family.
