The tale continues with Effia's descendants, who go through history as witnesses and victims. Gyasi's storytelling shines as she weaves the lives of individuals across seven generations, and pays close attention to details, showing how historical events shape their fates and make them victims of circumstances.

What They Say: "This incredible book travels from Ghana to the US, revealing how slavery destroyed so many families, traditions and lives - and how its terrifying impact is still reverberating now. Gyasi has created a story of real power and insight" - Stylist
