Day 06 – A book that makes you sad

My English teacher in secondary school introduced me to this book and it was brilliant. Some of you may know it as the television series but its humble beginnings was a simple novel. Alex Haley’s family history is painful and sad. I remember the scene when Kizzy is raped brutally by Tom Lea, her “owner”. It was horrifying and I cried. Their whole story is one of tribulation and finally a sense of settlement.

“Roots” tells a story of an American Family; where they came from and what they went through.
