Ancestors, by Paul Crooks - A Recommendation
Ancestors, by Paul Crooks
Fiction. In the quest for his family tree, cruelly uprooted 300 years ago by the inhumanity of slavery, in the early 1900s Paul Crooks undertook research which led him from London to the Caribbean, and from there to the Gold Coast of Africa where his forebears' story began. The facts he uncovered form the basis of this gripping novel.
ANCESTORS tells the story of two characters who begin on a slave ship bound from Africa to Jamaica, their part in the struggle for emancipation, and the hope and faith that sustain them for emancipation.
