A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars

by Yaba Badoe
£7.99   paperback  Head of Zeus (Zephyr) (2018)

A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars by Yaba Badoe A powerful, haunting, contemporary debut that steps seamlessly from the horrors of people-trafficking to the magic of African folklore, by an award-winning Ghanaian-British filmmaker.
 
Sante was a baby when she was washed ashore in a sea-chest laden with treasure. It seems she is the sole survivor of the tragic sinking of a ship carrying migrants and refugees. Her people.
 
Fourteen years on she's a member of Mama Rose's unique and dazzling circus. But, from their watery grave, the unquiet dead are calling Sante to avenge them:
 
A bamboo flute. A golden bangle. A ripening mango which must not fall...
  ... are these the missing pieces of the jigsaw which will tell Sante's story?
