A new book on the shelves, Threads of Broken Bonds, is an interesting read authored by Tebogo Nyathi.

Threads of Broken Bonds is a memoir of Nyathi’s tumultuous life journey where fabrics of intimacy in her life were abruptly broken one after the other; at the hands of ruptured trust, loss of life, and even intricate threads having weakened over time. It is a journey of bouncing back from a broken marriage engagement that left her with a scar of rejection.

Nyathi’s account of her activities in her life was written in a space of 25 days in November 2023 and this shows the level of commitment and dedication she gave to pen her story. Some of the most beautiful tapestries were woven out of threads that resulted from tears, slits or trends. In her own life and words, the author reveals how every broken relationship has resulted in something beautiful. “I am not scared of sharing my life with the world. I am not even ashamed to do so and I hope this book will encourage someone out there to do the same, at their own time,” she said.
