9780002255073: Book of Negros

Kidnapped from Africa as a child, Aminata Diallo is enslaved in South Carolina but escapes during the chaos of the Revolutionary War. In Manhattan she becomes a scribe for the British, recording the names of blacks who have served the King and earned their freedom in Nova Scotia. But the hardship and prejudice of the new colony prompt her to follow her heart back to Africa, then on to London, where she bears witness to the injustices of slavery and its toll on her life and a whole people. It is a story that no listener, and no reader, will ever forget. Reading group guide included.

Review:

Richly meticulous...succeeds admirably in giving voice to a captive people who were for so long kept mute.

Review:

[Hill] has an easy style and a fine sense of pace that make this a gripping, if horrifying story.
