Narrator Dominic Hoffman does a masterful job of telling the stories of two half sisters who are separated by life and brought together by fate. A searing tale of two women, Effia and Esi, this family epic moves from eighteenth-century Ghana to America in the 1920s. Hoffman’s deep baritone maximizes the myriad feelings at the heart of this sprawling historical tale. The slave trade, colonialism, and sexism are some of the issues the characters grapple with. Hoffman’s performance captures the rhythms of West-African English, giving authenticity to the listening experience. This audiobook will keep listeners enthralled with these fierce heroines for hours. M.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
