A sweeping family saga, beautiful and brutal

Two half-sisters are born and raised in nearby villages in West Africa; one marries an Englishman and lives a privileged life, while the other is captured and sold into slavery. The novel traces both sides of this family tree through seven generations, beginning in the 18th century and progressing to the present. Encompassing 300 years of African and African-American history, it is a stunning and poignant testament to the human spirit, as well as an amazing story
