Namwali Serpell’s The Furrows: A Novel tells the story of Cassandra Williams, who was 12 when her 7-year-old brother, Wayne, is lost forever. Years later, Cassandra meets a man mysterious and familiar, who is also searching for someone and his own place in the world. His name is Wayne. And in Jacinda Townsend’s Mother Country: A Novel, a toddler in Morocco is adopted by a visiting African American woman. But the girl already has a mother – an undocumented Mauritanian who was trafficked as a teen – and the two women face an inevitable reckoning.
