Modupe Adeyemo debuts her first work of fiction in this suspense-packed novel about homecoming, identity, hope, redemption, forgiveness and belonging.
A dental surgeon by day and a writer by night, Modupe is a prolific writer and a chronic reader. Jacana Books is proud to support Modupe Adeyemo as we announce that she is our resident writer for the month of October.
Adeyemo has been writing since she was in Grade four. F’resyne is her first work on fiction. Jacanabooks is working on an interview with her. Watch this space!
In this book, Adeyemo takes African cultural fiction to another level with its narrative versatility and provoking suspense. F’resyne, the ‘unabandoned’ baby in the forest with her parent, travels five thousand miles away from home and her heritage. She and her mother are forced back after the loss of her father.
F’resyne meets Noel who is determined to trace her lineage. While she is hesitant in unmasking her past, her journey of discovery and identity satisfies the gulfs in various lives.
