Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, narrated by Dominic Hoffman.
Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery, one a slave trader's wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow.
Taking us from the Gold Coast of Africa to the cotton-picking plantations of Mississippi, from the missionary schools of Ghana to the dive bars of Harlem, spanning three continents and seven generations, Yaa Gyasi has written a miraculous novel - the intimate, gripping story of a brilliantly vivid cast of characters and, through their lives, the very story of America itself. Epic in its canvas and intimate in its portraits, Homegoing is a searing and profound debut from a masterly new writer.

One of the best book I have ever read
Yes. It was a fantastic , well thought out and well narrated novel. I felt like I was being read a history lesson on many levels containing both personal and national events. So well written and narrated. A fantastic well executed idea. Made me want to research my history further and take my children to Ghana.
Without spoiling the book I thought the ending was perfect. Not expected but the only way it could have ended.
No. First but thought he was brilliant and handled most accents with ease.
Yes. The book made me smile and cry.
I'm sure this book will become a classic and can't wait for more from the author.
