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.

A journey through generations
Beautifully woven- Don't Miss It!!
This is by far the most touching story I have read yet. I have learned something on slave trade first hand and how it affected generations of lives across continents.
How beautifully woven it is. Not easy writing across so many generations. All the changes one goes through with the characters.
Nothing really. I mostly like reading but for an Oyinbo he tried shah. He must be commended for reading the parts of the Fante, Ashante, Twi languages.
It made me sad, and other times I cried and was frustrated in equal measure.
