“The single ray of light is the budding relationship between Jodie, an emotional, troubled and honest detective, and the damaged, but powerful Ntombi, who has overcome the constrictions of her abuse and emerged as hard and defiant as an avenging butterfly,” he adds.
She added, “I felt like I was drowning and felt like with every breath I was waging a war against myself.” Nomvelo is in a much better place and she hopes that her story will inspire others, “I want people to know that there is hope. You have to take it one day at a time and believe that it will get better. I still struggle some days and I have to talk to myself and let myself know that it will be alright, even if I don’t feel like it in the moment,” she said.
