Reviews

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
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
Hill's depiction of [Aminata's] journey to freedom is a powerful tale of pride and perseverance.--Sara Nelson
