Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
This was a great book! I got so immersed in the story that I forgot that I was reading a book and not listening to a storyteller. It was beautifully written. The narrative reminds me a little of Memoirs of a Geisha in that you get so engrossed in the story, and in the plight of this woman on this incredible journey that you forget that the author is male. Hill created a strong, sensitive, intelligent, and loving character in Aminata. Lookng forward to reading more of Hill's works.
