Homegoing is a beautiful novel that takes its readers through three hundred years of a family from Ghana. It begins in 18th century Ghana with two sisters who go on to lead incredibly different lives. The book then follows their children from generation to generation, through warfare and slavery and everything in between. Each chapter takes a snippet of one descendents lives and weaves them together to present the history of this family.
Unlike any other historical fiction I’ve read, Homegoing was beautifully written and fascinating yet sad. Each chapter dealt with different issues and movements throughout history and ends in the 21st century. This was a great novel for people interested in history as a whole because it covers so many different generations.
