A family saga that tells two stories that keeps you hooked until the last page. It follows a family over 300 years, beginning in Ghana with two sisters, Effia and Esi, same mother but different fathers. One is sold into slavery, the other marries a British soldier. The chapters alternate between the next generation of each sister and ties them together in the last chapter. So, so good! I’d give it a 5 but it takes awhile to realize how the chapters are set up; dates would have really helped! I found I had to keep referring to the family chart in the front of the book to remember who was who!
