the book of negroes

What kind of courage does it take to survive watching your parents die, stolen from your home, sold into slavery and sent to the New World?

I started reading this book two nights ago and I am hooked like a woman with PMS on chocolate. I originally bought it for my husband since I was already reading another book. He devoured it. He actually woke up early in the morning just to read. And now it is my turn.

I think if it hasn't been deemed this already, this is going to be the next great Canadian novel. I highly recommend you visit your local bookstore or library and start reading it. You won't be able to put it down.
