The words of Tosin have the ability to seep into your very core and affect you profoundly. This book has a lot of things going for it, not the least of which is its honest and wonderful narrative. The reader will likely refer back to Tosin’s book quite a few times throughout the reading experience.

Tosin was stuck in a cycle of unsuccessful romantic partnerships as a result of unaddressed difficulties in her past. Her stories about drug use and sexual encounters with her lovers capture the carefree attitude and swaying motion of young people who are letting go of their inhibitions and giving themselves over to the experience of living.

The more you find out about Tosin’s love and forgiveness, not only for herself but also for others who have wronged her, the more it becomes evident that she possesses an enormous amount of spiritual understanding. Tosin has no other option but to put her faith in God because she has exhausted all of her other options.

After you have started reading Unchained, you won’t be able to put it down until you have finished it. Additionally, it’s possible that you haven’t read another book that is as genuine and inspirational as this one is.
