Editorial Reviews

Caribbean Camera
Her writing style is straightforward, and definitely not pretentious. This is what makes it a delightful read. You settle down with the book, feeling confident that Yvonne is your good friend and living room raconteur.
Toronto Star
There is nothing quite like the beating of African drums," she writes. "The sound resonates inside your chest, your heart, your very soul. I closed my eyes. I felt that the drums were talking to me, calling me, welcoming me.
Weekly Gleaner (N.A.)
From a dramatic opening chapter to a poignant author's note, Blackwood shares her tale in comfortable, engaging prose, but all the while it is clear that her trip to Africa had to materialize at some point.

    Loved it!

    If by writing this book, Ms. Blackwood aimed to get the readers to see Africa through her eyes, she did. I was right there with her. The story fascinated me, I couldn't put it down. It was told in a way I have never seen before. It certainly gave me a perspective of West Africa different from the one always given by the media. The book encourges us to dream and discover. Every ethnic person who has immigrated from their ancestral land (or their parents) should read this story. I loved it. Thank you Ms. Blackwood for enlightening us.

    What an adventure!!

    Into Africa is truly a fascinating story. The author has a powerful way of articulating things and she made me feel as if I was setting in her living room sharing the story. I laughed, cried and was joyous with her all the way. The book is about travel, a journey, but it is a lot more than that, its about pursuing a dream coupled with determination. Bravo! to Blackwood. Every woman from teenager to 90 should read this book.

    Into Africa: A Personal Journey

    Growing up in the Carribean, I always wanted to visit the Continent of Africa. Reading 'Into Africa A Personal Journey', brought me to that place. The story captured the land, the people, the spirit and I could see that beautiful place through the author's eyes. Undoubtidly, the book caputures the readers immigination. This is now a place I intend to visit.

    Into Africa: A Personal Journey

    As I gobbled up the pages of 'Into Africa A Personal Journey,' I traveled with the author. I was there with her. I could hear, see, touch and smell as she did. Not many writers can tease the senses to such a degree. The story is a remarkable adventure of a woman filled with determination. I hope many readers , no matter what color, race or creed, will read this book and share in its richness. I've never been to the continent of Afica but this book has certainly encouraged me to take that trip. It is a delightful book!
