Liberian Novel

When the Heart Decides, is a story of the triumph of love over adversity, and of the strength of the heart that seeks love even in the midst of one of the world’s bloodiest civil wars. It is a classic African epic that recounts the realities of war with a dash of romance and Christianity.

The publishers are iUniverse and the book was written by George Gyude Wisner II, who lived in his native country of Liberia throughout its civil war. He is also a poet and the coauthor of multiple UNDP-commissioned studies. The book was published in 2013 when he was pursuing a Masters of Public Policy (Development Policy) at the Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University.
