Samenvatting

Ayanna Bahati lives in a small African village when she is brutally kidnapped, along with her mother and brother, and forced onto a slave ship to America. As Ayanna, renamed Anna, rises from the cotton fields to the master's house, she finds the familial love she's been yearning for-but she is also faced with more threats to her survival. Risking everything to escape the plantation, Anna makes it to the North and to freedom, eventually settling in the free black community of Hadson, Ohio, and educating herself to become a teacher. A moving account from a compelling new storyteller.

Recensie(s)

Noni Carter is an important new voice in black literature. Get on board now because we'll be hearing from her for a long, long time. -- Reginald Hudlin, producer/director of House Party and Boomerang and author of The Black Panther Series Few young novelists have the gift, range, and courage to tackle the sin of Slavery. Noni Carter does just that. And she does it well. Read Good Fortune and know that she has that rare quality of a natural storyteller--simple, poetic, and intensely emotional. This is extraordinary writing, rich in history, full of triumph. -- Kwame Alexander, author of Crush: Love Poems, and founder of Book-in-a-Day, Inc. Noni Carter is an old wise soul in the body of a beautiful young woman. She has listened to the elders and the ancestors and brought us a story from the past that gives hope to our present and future. -- Bertice Berry, author of Redemption Song and The Ties That Bind Noni Carter was only a child when she first conceived of this story of a young girl's journey from freedom to slavery and back to ultimate freedom--but her debut novel is written with wisdom and heart far beyond her years. Well researched and delightfully well-written, Good Fortune is an empowering testament to history that will move readers both young and old. -- Tananarive Due, American Book Award-winning author of The Black Rose and Joplin's Ghost
