​​Into Africa: the Return, articulates Blackwood’s second journey to West Africa. This time she is accompanied by two American cousins– Peabody, 70, and her daughter, Marie. After 40 years, Cousin Peabody reunites with Afua, her Ashanti friend. Afua’s brother dies the day before the three cousins arrive in Ghana and plans go awry. Peabody soon realizes that her previous refusal to visit Africa was unwarranted. In Ghana, Blackwood meets her protégée Frieda and the dashing Pastor Ray for the first time.




A remarkable and intriguing story about a journey to the land of Blackwood’s ancestors. Into Africa begins in Nigeria with exposure to the tight control by the military that causes Blackwood to experience fear as never before. Her journey continues to take her on an exploration of a new mysterious world where she experiences joy and wonderment as she shares in the lives of family members, friends and new acquaintances.

"Yvonne Blackwood's book made me want to rise up and pursue my dreams. The story is a journey in more ways than one. It's a journey to West Africa. It's a journey to enlightenment. . ."
