Historical Fiction enthusiasts will love Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. It won several awards including being one of Oprah's favorite books of 2016. This book is Gyasi debut novel and a Book Club favorite. The story follows an African-American family through many generations. It begins in Ghana during the eighteenth century and ends in present day America. This is a fascinating read about a family who's roots started in slavery. The author gives a realistic picture of the repercussions future generations faced. This story is rich in history with many historical details and complex characters. Each chapter represents a different character and period in time. Although I loved the book, this style was sometimes frustrating. Just as you were becoming immersed in the character's story, it switched to a different one. Overall, this was an excellent book and beautifully written. It would make an excellent Book Club choice.Back.
