Former PC Niger staffer (and Togo RPCV) Mark Wentling has just released the second book in his African Trilogy.
Published by Peace Corps Writers, Africa’s Release is available at Amazon.com. It will be made available as a Kindle e-book in the coming weeks.
Journey to another time and place in Mark Wentling’s magical new novel, Africa’s Release.
The residents of Gemini, Kansas, have grown used to the odd man who goes by the name of JB and roams their neighborhood in a befuddled state. But when he abruptly disappears one night, the townspeople find themselves facing uncomfortable questions, as JB’s life and the dark discoveries in his ramshackle home are made public.
Little do they know that JB’s ramblings have all been for a purpose: to transport him back to the African village he left many years before. Now he has returned to the old baobab tree that had years ago swallowed him up—an event that elevated him to the level of demigod in the eyes of the remaining villagers.
This sequel to the popular Africa’s Embrace, and the second book in Wentling’s trilogy, is sure to enchant readers once more.
