I read a good book

Another book to add to my list of great reads is Someone Knows My Name, (although I read it under the title, The Book of Negros) they changed the title for the US market.  It's about a girl who was stolen from her village in Africa and sold into slavery and follows her through her incredible life, it's historical fiction which is my favorite. 
 It was 500 pages that I couldn't put down.

"The stars were brilliant that night, and the cicadas were crying in endless song. If the sky was so perfect, why was the earth all wrong?"

(Any fellow Canadian's (my age) might remember the authors brother, Dan Hill the singer songwriter.)
