The Book of Ne­groes, Lawrence Hill

North York Post - - Arts -

I read this novel in one night. I stayed up un­til 5 a.m. and read it. I could not put this book down. What an in­cred­i­ble job en­cap­su­lat­ing the essence and spirit of this beau­ti­ful pro­tag­o­nist’s fight for free­dom and strug­gle as a woman of colour. I’ve al­ways been drawn to nov­els with strong fe­male voices over­com­ing im­pos­si­ble sit­u­a­tions. This char­ac­ter is the voice of the strength that I be­lieve all of us women em­body.
