Coming Down from Wa
by Audrey Thomas
Publisher: Viking

Coming Down from Wa

William Kwane MacKenzie’s life has always been full of puzzles. His grandfather is able to answer some of his questions, and directs him to the place where he knows the rest of the answers can be found: Africa. Ghana, and the time William’s parents spent there as aid workers in the sixties, hold the key to the family’s secret past. And so William embarks on a voyage that will take him around the globe and into the past on a heart-wrenching quest for the truth, and a knowledge of himself that can be found only in this mysterious, challenging, and beautiful land. Audrey Thomas lives and works on Galiano Island.
