Tone: Realistic, Adult, Historical
Where I found this title: 2018 Seattle Reads through the Seattle Library
Take Away: This title was chosen for the 2018 Seattle Reads book. The fictional work follows the lineage of two families from early African Tribal life, through the devastation of the slave trade, and onto current day. Each character/time frame is pretty much self-contained, almost separate stories. I loved the characters and the realistic feel of the settings. Although I probably wouldn’t have chosen to read this on my own, I’m glad I did. It is well written and worth reading. There is violence and explicit content.
