As a genealogist of twenty five years searching for my West African enslaved ancestors, this book called to me.
The mythology, stunning imagery and writing style held my attention from the beginning and continued until the last page ( which I wanted to continue I loved it so much!)
The story is extremely plausible and I would tag this historical fantasy and speculative fiction. With each chapter, Yetu’s remembrance made me cheer for the descendants of the women who were thrown overboard pregnant. How many of our ancestor’s siblings, mothers, aunts were lost to the sea and we never knew their names?
This book is a love letter to our ancestors to remember who they were and to never forget what happened.
