Yaa Gyasi’s—Homegoing *****

Yaa Gyasi’s—Homegoing *****

This bi-family generational saga begins in the 1700s. The British have established Cape Coast Castle in Ghana. Because of Effia’s mother’s cunning plan, Effia is married to an Englishman and moves away from her Asante tribe to live with her new husband in Coast Castle. Esi begins the journey of the second family. She’s locked up below Coast Castle with hundreds of others awaiting shipment to another part of the world and a life of slavery.

The lives of these two families continue to the present day with each chapter centered around the following generation.
