Book Description :

Ghana, eighteenth century: two half sisters are born into different villages, each unaware of the other. One will marry an Englishman and lead a life of comfort in the palatial rooms of the Cape Coast Castle. The other will be captured in a raid on her village, imprisoned in the very same castle, and sold into slavery. One of Oprah’s Best Books of the Year and a PEN/Hemingway award winner, Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. Yaa Gyasi’s extraordinary novel illuminates slavery’s troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed—and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation. A New York Times Notable Book

Book Description :

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi | Summary & Analysis Preview: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi is a novel in stories about the Atlantic slave trade and its aftermath. The novel begins with the stories of two African half-sisters of the Fante and Asante tribes: Effia and Esi. Effia is born in the late eighteenth century in Fanteland on Africa’s Gold Coast, on the night of a devastating fire near her father’s compound. Her adoptive mother, Baaba, immediately resents her, because Effia is the daughter of her father Cobbe’s house girl. In 1775, when Effia is young, British soldiers from the Cape Coast Castle come to the village. Effia wants to marry Abeeku Badu, who is in line to be chief. But to prevent Effia from marrying him, Baaba tells Effia that she must hide the blood from her first period. She knows that as long as people think Effia is premenstrual, she won’t be permitted to marry a Fante man, per tribal customs… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Book Description :

Fiction. In Laurelville, Ohio—a small town in the foothills of the Appalachians—nobody knows why Hannah Marshal drowned in Laurel Creek in 1937. Over two decades later, her niece, Ruth Sherman, takes it upon herself to find out. As she ispressed by her grandmother to learn the folk cures and healing rituals of Appalachian Christianity and armed with only a few rumors, old newspapers clipping and even some ghost stories about her aunt, Ruth begins to uncover the events surrounding Hannah's death. Twenty-one year old Ruth finds herself on a journey into the past, the traditions of a southern-Ohio Pentecostal church, and the shadowy side of the Holy Ghost among serpent handlers. On the journey, Ruth discovers her own spiritual gifts and uncovers the unspoken shame in her family. "Healings. Snake handlers. Stills. Quotes from the Bible. Family feuds. Chicken coops. Speaking in tongues. Indian medicine bags. Laying outs. Intergenerational rivalry. Forty lashes of hot wax. Old-fashioned tent revivals. Michael Olin-Hitt, in THE HOMEGOING, has, with skillful writing and a true knowledge of home, combined the aura of the mid-twentieth-century Appalachia of southern Ohio with the puzzle of a mysterious disappearance and the solving of a family mystery.

Disowned. Disgraced. Discarded. I had been Princess of Bruster, then Queen of Ferrant. Now I was neither. I built a new life, in a new land. The clerk of my adopted lord. I wanted to copy books and build his library. Quiet and unremarked amongst parchment and ink. Then the great ship came. It delivered a letter - to a land where almost no one could read. By the time the letter came to my hands, the ship had departed. We had no way to tell them we had never heard of them. They gave us one year, but how could we meet their demands when we did not know what they meant? War was coming. Unless I could prevent it.
