After They Left is the first novel coming from the uniquely talented writer, Edify Yakusak. It is a story of loss and sadness, but also of hope and belief.
After They Left chronicles the life of a young woman, Mafeng and her two young children, Kim and Jugu, as they barely survive a mob inspired massacre. Separated from their mother, the children are forced to wander the jungles and hilly back roads of Plateau state, while their mother is kept locked up in the hospital. The children come in contact with an international trafficking organization on their journey to safety.
Yakusak takes us on a journey filled with suspense, twists and turns, and uncertainty at the turn of every page.
