A Place In The World
Author: Malcolm Frierson
Set in Baltimore, Ghana, and rural Georgia, this stunning novel unfolds as a tragic tale of love and family life. Kwame is a brilliant, nationalistic university professor, and Abena (Evelyn), a smart dedicated elementary school teacher. The couple leaves the U.S. and lives near Accra for a year to adopt Kofi, a little boy who becomes the center of their life back home. But after divorcing, Kwame marries Layla, his passionate grad student with a shocking secret, and a reborn Evelyn enters interracial marriage to Brian. Caught between his parents’ conflicts, a teenage Kofi strives to find himself while battling the dangerous voices in his mind of African ancestors lost in the Middle Passage.
