Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill, I just read it and was so impressed by the way the author writes. Lawrence is a Canadian author. The story starts in an African village where a small girl is kidnapped/stolen/sold by slave traders and goes on to tell of her life as a slave in America and how she copes. Progresses to her as an adult telling her story in England. Highly reccomend this book. 5* out of 5*. pbp
