Rating
Set in Baltimore, Ghana, and rural Georgia, this stunning novel unfolds as a tragic tale of love and family life. Kwame is a brilliant, nationalistic university professor, ​and Abena (Evelyn), a smart dedicated elementary school teacher. The couple leaves the U.S. and lives near Accra for a year to adopt Kofi, a little boy who becomes the center of their life back home. But after divorcing, Kwame marries Layla, his passionate grad student with a shocking secret, and a reborn Evelyn enters interracial marriage to Brian. Caught between his parents' conflicts, a teenage Kofi strives to find himself while battling the dangerous voices in his mind of African ancestors lost in the Middle Passage.

Reviews

"Enjoyed every bit of it - the pace, the depth, the unfolding tensions, and the way it explored the issues of race and diaspora. This was great storytelling."--Daniel Musiitwa, Editor of Africa Book Club "Shocking, yet real lines in the story. Although fiction, the story doesn't sugarcoat real life and how we in African American and Caribbean cultures relate to each other."--Janette Brin, Editor at Caribbean POSH Magazine
