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.
