Product description


A masterpiece, daring and impressive in its geographic, historical and human reach.

Lawrence Hill's hugely impressive historical work is completely engrossing and deserves a wide, international readership.--Delia Jarrett-Macauley

I found myself surprised on occasion to catch sight of Mr. Hill's name on the cover.... He had me believing that this tale came not from the imagination and research of a 21st-century male author, but from the experience of an 18th-century African woman.--Kim Lundstrom

An inspirational novel of imaginative excellence and captivating power.... Every step of the way, Lawrence Hill offers readers a vivid portrayal of the emotional landscape that brings Aminata's tale to life. I highly recommend reading this poignant book.--Charles Shea LeMone

Stunning, wrenching and inspiring.... Hill handles the pacing and tension masterfully... [his] book is a harrowing, breathing tour de force.

With grace and compassion, Hill populates true and harrowing experience with an authentic hero--just as good historical fiction requires.--Jennifer Berman

Dramatic... Hill captures Aminata's power.--DeNeen L. Brown --This text refers to the paperback edition.
