The Book of Echoes, saw Rosanna Amaka shortlisted for the Author's Club First Novel Award, The RSL Christopher Bland Award and the HWA Debut Crown Award.
Brixton, 1981. Sixteen-year-old Michael is already on the wrong side of the law. In his community, where job opportunities are low and drug-running is high, this is nothing new.
When Michael falls for Ngozi, a vibrant young immigrant from the Nigerian village of Obowi, their startling connection runs far deeper than they realise.
Narrated by an African woman who lost her life on a slave ship two centuries earlier, this powerful story reveals how Michael and Ngozi’s struggle for happiness began many lifetimes ago.
Through haunting, lyrical words, one unforgettable message resonates: love, hope and unity will heal us all.
