This is a powerfully written story about two strands of a family in Ghana, from 1770s through to the present day. That you only get a part of each person's story means that it really packs a punch. I read this earlier in the year and picked this copy up second hand to Bookcross.

I took ages to read this as it was quite grueling in places and I was basically reading it one chapter at a time but I did enjoy it! I thought the ending was great, and enjoyed recognising some of the historic events going on as the story progressed. I was really thankful that I had listened to an episode of the podcast 'You're Dead to Me' about the Asante Empire in the last couple of months, so I had a bit of background knowledge that I wouldn't have had otherwise. I agree with Bookfrogster that only having one chapter per person really makes it pack a punch, only getting a tiny bit of their life, with maybe a little bit more from the next generation.
