This novel of breathtaking sweep and emotional power traces three hundred years in Ghana and along the way becomes a truly great American novel. Half-sisters, Effia and Esi, are born into different villages in eighteenth-century Ghana, resulting in one’s life of riches and the other’s of slavery. Extraordinary for its exquisite language, its implacable sorrow, its soaring beauty, and for its monumental portrait of the forces that shape families and nations, Homegoing heralds the arrival of a major new voice in contemporary fiction.
