Cover homegoingHomegoing is the debut historical fiction novel by Yaa Gyasi (Ghana, 1989) and currently a favourite among those interested in the slave trade. The tale begins in the late 18th century in an Asante village, part of the Gold Coast which eventually became Ghana. Each chapter follows a different descendant of an Asante woman: daughter Effia marries the British governor in charge of Cape Coast Castle, while her half-sister Esi is held captive in the dungeons. Homegoing is the subject of our latest Library Highlight!
