'A beautiful; compelling artifice; spun from unspeakably savage facts . . . a fiction that faces the terrible truth about slavery' The Times WINNER OF THE COMMONWEALTH PRIZE FOR FICTION Based on a true story; Lawrence Hill's epic novel spans three continents and six decades to bring to life a dark and shameful chapter in our history through the story of one brave and resourceful woman. Abducted from her West African village at the age of eleven and sold as a slave in the American South; Aminata Diallo thinks only of freedom - and of finding her way home again. After escaping the plantation; torn from her husband and child; she passes through Manhattan in the chaos of the Revolutionary War; is shipped to Nova Scotia; and then joins a group of freed slaves on a harrowing return odyssey to Africa. What readers are saying: ***** 'Beautifully written ... an enlightening read' ***** 'Since reading; this has become my favourite book ever' ***** 'A powerful historical account of an incredible woman's journey'
