The Book of Negroes

The Book of Negros by Lawrence Hillby Lawrence Hill

I am on such a roll with excellent books - thanks in large part to my good friend Karen.  This was another story about someone courageous - my favorite kind of book.  I honestly, could not put it down.

It is the story of a woman who was taken from Africa as a child and sold into slavery and her remarkable life's journey. I loved it from the first word until the last.

Read it - you will love it too.

  1. Your book recommendation sounds intriguing! I am currently reading Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. I haven't gotten too far yet; it requires me to THINK while I read. I do have to confess, I DEVOURED "Spider Bones" by Kathy Reich yesterday.She is the writer who created the TV show "Bones". Crime fiction is one of my "secret" escapes that most wouldn't expect from me!!


Ooh! Please write something. Please. I would LOVE to hear your comments!
