Product Description

You can now purchase our Purely Books parcels on a month-by-month basis!

This parcel will include a gift-wrapped copy of the featured read for our October 2020 FROM AFAR theme, a personalised invitation to our online book group with the author and a signed bookplate. Here's what we've told you about our October book so far:

Our October book is a tale of twin sisters, separated by a brutal raid in their hometown; they will spend their teenage years trying to find their way back to one another. As they are cast adrift, they will face danger and discover new places, cultures and families, but can their shared dreams pull them back together again?

Written by a brilliant Ghanaian author and set partly in West Africa and partly in Brazil, this stunning paperback will transport you with its evocative language, historical detail and vivid characters.

Here in the UK, there's a real shortage of YA books with non-western authors writing about their native countries. We are so thrilled to be able to introduce you to this brilliant book, which is not only a wonderful heart-felt story, but a fascinating insight into a part of the world and a culture that we knew so little about. 

If you love stories set in far-flung places, by writers such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Ruta Septys and Awaeke Emezi - you will adore this book. Or, if you (like us) are on a mission to read more books by Black authors and champion Black voices, here's your chance.

Please note this is not a subscription and will not renew. If you'd like further Purely Books parcels from us you'll need to purchase these separately. Postage is not included and will be calculated at the checkout.
