Summary
In a small Nova Scotia town settled by former slaves, the lives of three generations of the Sebolt family-- Kath Ella, her son Omar/Etienne, and her grandson Warner-- unfold against the tumultuous events of the twentieth century. Like her ancestors, Kath Ella's life is shaped by hardship as she struggles to conceive and to provide for her family during the long, bitter Canadian winters. She must also contend with the locals' lingering suspicions about the dark-skinned "outsiders" who live in their midst. As her son grows up, the rebellious Omar refutes the past and decides to break from the family, threatening to upend all that Kath Ella and her people have tried to build. Over the decades, each successive generation drifts further from Africaville, yet all take a piece of this indelible place with them. -- adapted from publisher info
