Mara Menzies at Borders Book Festival

The storyteller, Mara Menzies, has written a novel that brings together African and Scottish culture in a unique and brilliant fusion. Blood and Gold: A Journey of Shadows tells the tale of Jeda, the daughter of an African mother and a Scottish father and it uses myth, magic realism and memory to conjure a riveting narrative. When Jeda’s mother dies, she leaves her daughter a box of stories which help her to make sense of her identity and to cope with her future in Scotland. Blood and Gold is beautifully illustrated by Eri Griffin.
