Homegoing Review

"Having both sides of one family journey home together more than 300 years after the fact is the start of a new truth, a new chapter."

My newest review for the Miami Herald is Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing. Steeped in history about the slave trade in both Ghana and the US, this is one of the best debut novels I've read in a while, and the best book I've read this summer. 

Hope you like the review and read it yourself. If you do, I'd love to know your thoughts!
