For a time I was Adaku, suffering, struggling, angry, shamed. It is a powerful story that is told so simply one doesn't realise that suddenly you have slipped on someone else's shoes and have entered a life we could never imagine. It is raw, savage, but truthful.

Adaku was captured in Africa. Leaving behind her husband and two sons. Adaku is pregnant. Her husband wanted a girl. This is a sad story of slavery and the terrible wrongs done to these strong brave WONDERFUL beautiful people

This book is living history told through the eyes of a young mother taken from her home in Africa. It's well written and fast paced. The characters are not so important to the story as is the situation and timing of the period. I will read the second book for sure. This is an eye opener.

I loved this book. It follows the story of a young woman taken by slave traders and torn away from her husband and children. It is told from the slave girl's view and all the terror and hardships that she experienced. I wanted more.

A good collection of individual histories. Unfortunately they are so repetitive with other authors who have used the same or similar source documents. Obviously the stories are true and reflect a terrible time in U.S. history. What is so revealing, and appalling about our educational system, is that the tellings have been so one-sided over the generations. The vast majority of us find the tales difficult to believe the many cruelties and inhumanities. Therefore it is so much easier to ignore them.

The story of Adaku helped put the hardship of capture and enslavement into better perspective. The book helps me articulate the realities of our heritage to those who benefit from the sacrifice and struggles of black people in America and for those who have no sense of the triumph of survival of people over what would be to some insurmountable opposition.

History is very much of interest to me as try to become more acquainted with pieces of history that I am not familiar. It seems as time passes, what I have learned in the past has become fuzzy. I like having references that I can restore sections of history that I should have remembered from my time in school. Thanks for making this section of history available.
