3) Second Chance tongue

By Second Chance, do you mean the JSCE novel where the girl gets pregnant at university and has twins? And someone is called Mina and one of the twins is called Miatta (sp?) or something?

Is the name of the novel, Second chance? The story of a girl from a very rich family, who gives birth to twin girls, one is named Miatta. Her mother's snottiness forces the husband to pack out of the family with one of the twins, (Miatta) whom she would reunite with seven years later. Yeah, the last name of the husband was "Essien."
