Africa Junction

Africa Junction artfully interweaves the stories of dramatically different lives and experiences – a Senegalese boy setting sail for Europe, a Welsh teenager running from Timbuktu, a young girl escaping from a life of slave labour in Mali – but at its heart is Adele and her quest.

Adele is in a mess. On her own with her young son, struggling to cope with her job as a teacher, and stuck in a disastrous affair – her life is unravelling. Her memories of idyllic years as a child in Senegal are fading, but she’s haunted by a vision of her childhood friend, Ellena.

Africa Junction artfully interweaves the stories of dramatically different lives and experiences – a Senegalese boy setting sail for Europe, a Welsh teenager running from Timbuktu, a young girl escaping from a life of slave labour in Mali – but at its heart is Adele and her quest.

From the rain-drenched streets of Britain to the sun-baked reds and yellows of Senegal and the violence of Liberia’s civil war, Africa Junction by Ginny Baily follows one woman’s attempt to draw the threads of her life together. Out of the quagmire of violence and hardship there emerges a tentative vision of common humanity and, ultimately, the possibility both of redemption and of love.
