My favourite book of all times is The Book of Negroes , written by Canadian author Lawrence Hill. The book of Negroes won Canada reads for 2009.
If you have the chance to pick this one up it is a MUST read!!! You can purchase at any bookstore in paperback for about $10-$15. I have recommended The book of Negros to everyone I know who loves a good read. Although this book is fiction I find I couldn't put it down.
This is about a one girls path of life through slavery. The main charter is Amanata Diallo she is a fascinating character and very easily liked. Amanata has over come great loss and still finds a way to continue on. Her strength and sheer determination through discrimination and slavery is what makes this story so special.
I truly love this book and hope you will take the time to read it.
