This story was so vividly told that I could feel the emotions of the characters. I could see Ghana surrounding me, smell its smells and hear the noises of both the city and the shrine. This was a gripping tale that took hold of me from the first sentence and would not let me go until I was finished reading. I will carry this story with me for the rest of my life--the good, the bad, and the triumph. Ms. McFadden is truly a master storyteller and I thank her for telling a story that needed to be told.
