A very powerful book following two branches of a family. Effia's mother has always hated her, and stops her marriage to the chief, making her leave the village and marry a white slave trader. Esi finds out from the house girl that she has a sister she doesn't know about, and in return sends information which leads to her being captured by a neighbouring tribe and sold into slavery. Effia's branch of the family stay in Ghana, Esi's are in America. As the book follows the generations of the family, the world slowly changes around them. I sometimes found the book jumped between people just as I'd got into one character's story, but that's necessary with this type of story-telling. A great read.
