"Two half sisters, Effia and Esi, unknown to each other, are born into two different tribal villages in 18th century Ghana. Effia will be married off to an English colonial, and will live in comfort in the sprawling, palatial rooms of Cape Coast Castle, raising half-caste children who will be sent abroad to be educated in England before returning to the Gold Coast to serve as administrators of the Empire. Her sister, Esi, will be imprisoned beneath Effia in the Castle's women's dungeon, and then shipped off on a boat bound for America, where she will be sold into slavery. Stretching from the tribal wars of Ghana to slavery and Civil War in America, from the coal mines in the north to the Great Migration to the streets of 20th century Harlem, Yaa Gyasi's has written a modern masterpiece, a novel that moves through histories and geographies and--with outstanding economy and force--captures the troubled spirit of our own nation"--… (més)

Gyasi’s work is a triumph on every level and should be required reading in our schools. “Homegoing” brilliantly traces the history of two related families and the profound impact slavery had on multiple generations. It’s a riveting but complicated journey that takes some effort on the part of the reader. I kept a diagram of the family tree nearby and consulted it at least 20 times during my literary adventure. I also found myself rereading certain passages as the author skipped forward and backwards in time. But the effort was richly rewarded. It’s a stunning saga that touches readers’ hearts while prodding them to confront issues that are timely today as they were in the 18th century. ( )

Intense, beautiful, and sometimes overwhelming saga of a family divided by slavery. ( )

A difficult book due to the content, but very well-written. The time and perspective shifting was a bit more challenging than in most books, but still easy enough to handle. ( )

I read this because of how very, very much I liked Transcendent Kingdom. For me, this didn't blow me away like TK did, but Homegoing's stories and Yea Gyasi's writing are still powerful and absorbing. From the capture of people in Africa so that they could be shipped into slavery, to life in Harlem, to the book's moving conclusion, the stories are vivid and memorable. ( )

A fascinating book, that traces the branches of two related families, both starting in Ghana in the mid-1700s. The two matriarchs are half-sisters, although neither knows of the other's existence. One marries a white slave trader and lives a life of relative luxury; the other is sold as a slave and shipped to America. The book alternates between each of these families, telling stories of each subsequent generation until we reach modern time. This isn't a long book, and each character only has a relatively brief presence, and yet the total effect is powerful and moving. Although we've heard about the slave trade in numerous ways, this telling is different, maybe because the focus is on the "home," although I'm not sure that's all of it. Anyway, an excellent book.

We believe the one who has the power. He is the one who gets to write the story. So when you study history, you must always ask yourself, Whose story am I missing? Whose voice was suppressed so that this voice could come forth. Once you have figured that out, you must find that story too. From there, you begin to get a clearer, yet still imperfect picture.
