Summary
"Narrated by the soul of an African slave woman, this is a searing debut novel of hope, redemption and the scars of history. Over two hundred years ago in Africa, a young woman tosses her infant son to safety as she is hauled away by slavers. After a brutal sea passage, her newborn baby girl is snatched away. Although she doesn't know it yet, her spirit is destined to roam the earth in search of her lost children. She will make her way to England where Michael is trying to stay out of trouble as riots spit and boil down the streets of South London, and all the way to a sun-baked village in Nigeria, where a servant girl named Ngozi struggles to escape her low-caste status. As the invisible threads that draw them together are pulled ever tighter, The Book of Echoes asks: how can we overcome the traumas of the past when they are woven, so inextricably, with the present?"--Provided by publisher
